Red-hot Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero scored the opening goal in the visitors’ comprehensive 5-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Wednesday evening, the 50th top-flight strike that the little Argentinian has registered since joining the club three years ago.
The 25-year-old was the fifth-fastest to the landmark, reaching it in 81 games, although the night ended sourly for both Kun and City when the player limped off at half-time with a hamstring injury.
However, not even that news could truly dampen the mood for Manuel Pellegrini and Co., with the north-west outfit now top of the Premier League going into Monday’s title showdown with third-placed Chelsea at Eastlands.
And with 68 goals to their name in the league so far this season, already two more than in the whole of the previous campaign, at an astonishing rate of 2.96 per game, who would bet against the marauding Mancunians getting the better of the west Londoners, even without an injured Aguero.
