Sergio Aguero scored his 100th Premier League goal, albeit a dubious one, but Manchester City would concede an equalizer and settle for a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.
Coming off the heels of a convincing win against Chelsea in which Aguero grabbed a hat trick, it looked to be a repeat performance against the Magpies this evening as City were on the front foot early and found the opener just 14 minutes into the match. However, the goal should not have been allowed as Aguero was clearly in an offside position when Aleksandar Kolarov delivered a free kick into the area and the Argentine superstar headed it home. Aguero nearly had a chance for a second when he went down in the box on 50 minutes but the referee did not grant a penalty. The attack became less potent as the match went on and City were unable to find a winner against an inspired Newcastle side. Regardless, it has been a rousing success of a fantasy double gameweek for Aguero owners, especially for those that gave him the armband, as Kun delivered four goals in the round. Apr 19 - 4:57 PM

Sergio Aguero was incredible against Chelsea today - single-handedly winning the match by scoring three goals.

Aguero is one of the best players in the Premier League and is always a threat to score, but today was certainly his day as he destroyed Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Aguero's second goal was the most impressive, as he expertly beat the offside trap to get a one on one against Courtois. He finished off the hat-trick with a penalty kick late in the match.

Manuel Pellegrini insists there is no chance that Sergio Aguero will miss Tuesdays’ Champions league clash with Paris Saint-Germain after he limped off against West Brom on Saturday evening.

Aguero was caught late in the game around the ankle / Achilles and while undoubtedly painful, the Argentine is not in danger of missing any minutes. "Kun had just a kick - it’s not a problem for Tuesday," confirmed the Chilean boss post-match. Pellegrini also revealed that David Silva "will not have any problems" for PSG after sitting out of yesterdays’ match due to an ongoing ankle issue. There was more good news for City as Samir Nasri came through 90 minutes unscathed in his first Premier league start since September. Meanwhile, Fabian Delph and Yaya Toure were able to step up their fitness against the Baggies. Vincent Kompany will be assessed on Monday – the skipper has a chance of returning for the second-leg tie.

Sergio Aguero scored from the spot for City's first and assist on the winner but the headline is the Argentine's health as he limped through the closing stages.

The knock that Aguero picked up was hardly catastrophic and he wasn't removed immediately from the pitch. That said, with a Champions League replay against PSG looming on Tuesday with the tie even at 2 apiece, City will need their talisman at his best if they hope to advance. Beyond Tuesday, City gained ground on Arsenal today in the race for third but can't afford to be without Aguero down the stretch if they want to secure Champions League football again for next season.

Manchester City used four second-half goals to roll past bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa at the Etihad to keep its hold on a top-four place with West Ham pressuring.

Aston Villa held City goalless in the first 45 minutes, but that didn't last long after Yaya Toure, who returned to start after missing the midweek match with a foot injury, connected on a pass from David Silva for the first goal of the afternoon. Two minutes later, Sergio Aguero capitalized on a poor clearance by former City teammate Micah Richards for his first Premier League goal since Week 24. Aguero doubled his tally after a beautiful one-two sequence with Silva, his second assist, but the Argentine missed his chance for a hat-trick after hitting the post on a penalty kick. Raheem Sterling rounded out the scoring with a tap-in goal following Jesus Navas' cross in the 66th minute.

Manchester City had a chance to jump above Leicester City for top spot in the table with a home win today, but they were beaten handily by the Foxes, 1-3

There is no stopping Leicester it seems as City witnessed on a wet afternoon in Manchester. Statistically, City looked to be the better side. They had plenty of possession in the final third and had nine corners and a few free kicks from dangerous areas. The Foxes just had a solid defensive performance led by Kasper Schmeichel in goal and Robert Huth, who would score two of Leicester's three goals. The City defense certainly didn't perform like title contenders. As a consolation for fantasy managers and City alike, Sergio Aguero managed to score in the final minutes as the Foxes saw the game out. City's gap with Leicester doubles from three to six points now and may slip behind Tottenham if Spurs win later today.

Sergio Aguero looks to be an unstoppable force in 2016 now that he is back fit, scoring the lone goal in a 1-0 win against scrappy bottom-dwellers Sunderland.

Aguero leads the Premier League in 2016 with six goals in five goals, five of which have come in just the last three league matches. The Argentina international's positioning and composure continue to shine through as Aguero found himself in the perfect spot inside the penalty box after a deflected ball from Jesus Navas fell right to his boots in the 16th minute. Aguero calmly poked it over the charging keeper for the goal, which proved to be all City needed to take the three points. Manchester City got more good news as Aleksandar Kolarov returned as a second-half substitute following a calf injury. But Jesus Navas went off with what appeared to be a leg injury late in the second half.

Sergio Aguero's brace helped Manchester City win a point on the road at Upton Park.

West Ham took the lead through Enner Valencia twice in this match but Sergio Aguero answered both times to earn Manchester City a point. In a wildly exciting match, Kouyate hit the crossbar in stoppage time and came extremely close to winning the match. With the draw, Manchester City are now tied with Arsenal for second place, but have an extra game played.

The seasonal buzz for Sergio Aguero is about to begin after the Manchester City talisman recorded two goals and an assist in the club's 4-0 drubbing of Crystal Palace.

Aguero waited until minutes before halftime to score his first, benefitting from a deflection off Scott Dann to give City a 2-0 lead after Fabian Delph opened the scoring in the 22nd minute with his shot from distance. Aguero was the beneficiary of a beautiful team goal after a series of passes between him, Yaya Toure and Kevin De Bruyne around the penalty box led to a tap-in for the club's leading scorer. But Aguero returned the midfield's generosity by passing up a chance at a hat-trick in the 84th minute off a fastbreak with just the keep to beat, instead electing to assist on David Silva's first goal since his return from injury. Not everything was good for City as Aleksandar Kolarov was taken off on a stretcher in the 52nd minute after suffering a leg injury.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero will not be rested for Wednesday's Capital One Cup semifinal against Everton after playing much of the game against Watford along with scoring the match-winner.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed that Aguero is set to start, mostly due to an injury to Wilfried Bony over the weekend: "Bony has a kick in his calf so maybe he’s not fit for tomorrow. In a few days more he should be fine to come back. Sergio played three games in a week which was no problem for this moment." But Aguero will likely see a break for the weekend match against Norwich City when Premier League teams will begin their FA Cup runs.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said he will consider starting Sergio Aguero on Monday against Arsenal upon his return from a heel injury.

Said Pellegrini: "Kun is working with the squad without problems. We’ll asses him to see if he’s 100% to start the game but I think he’ll be in the squad on Monday." Aguero has missed the last two league matches with the injury but could provide problems for Arsenal's defense—no team has conceded less goals than the Gunners this season—if he replaces Wilfried Bony in the starting lineup. Fernando and Samir Nasri are still out with their respective injuries while Kevin De Bruyne is expected to return to the starting lineup after being rested in Week 16.

Sergio Aguero could hand Manchester City a major boost ahead of its biggest game of the season against Arsenal after the forward returned to training following a heel injury.

Aguero has missed the last two Premier League matches after suffering the injury in his first start after returning from a hamstring injury. Wilfried Bony filled in for Aguero during his absence, but the Argentine is expected to start if he is cleared for the weekend. Said the club's statement: "Provided there is no reaction, Manuel Pellegrini will hope to have Aguero available for the trip to the Emirates Stadium." Kevin de Bruyne is also slated to return to the starting lineup after being rested last week ahead of the festive period.

Manchester City will continue to be without two key members of its squad with Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany ruled out for the weekend match against Swansea City.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said he hoped to have the duo back for next week's showdown with Arsenal: "Aguero is improving but he will not be ready for this game. I hope next week he will start working with the squad Tuesday or Wednesday. We hope he’ll be fit for Arsenal." Aguero missed last weekend's loss to Stoke City as well as the Champions League fixture this past week due to a heel injury. Kompany has missed the last three week's with a calf injury that has plagued him throughout the season. Pellegrini chose to go with Raheem Sterling up top on Tuesday while Wilfried Bony got the start last weekend while Nicolas Otamendi is likely to be paired with Eliaquim Mangala in defense.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has ruled forward Sergio Aguero out for the mid-week Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach as a heel problems continues to affect the forward.

Pellegrini expressed hope that Aguero would be available to face Swansea City this weekend but said he wouldn't rush the forward back too soon. Said Pellegrini: "Sergio has an injury which means he cannot work normally so he needs time to recover. It’s not serious, it’s a pain injury. We hope he will be back this week but we’ll see how he improves in the next day. If he can run with normality, he can work." Wilfried Bony started for Aguero over the weekend while Kelechi Iheanacho also saw playing time up top.

Manchester City are starting to get used to life without Sergio Aguero as manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed the star forward will miss the weekend match against Stoke City.

Said Pellegrini: "We’ll see on Kun, he’s recovering from his heel. He’s in pain so it’s not easy for him to work. I don’t think he will be fit – maybe for Tuesday." The Argentine international was subbed off in the 65th minute last weekend with the problem and was expected to be fit for Week 15, but will now have to wait until the club's midweek Champions League fixture. Wilfried Bony is expected to fill in as he did in the midweek League Cup match against Hull City, when he scored a goal.
