Manchester City completely dominated Chelsea at The Etihad today, winning 3-0.
The score perfectly describes the match today and it could have been much worse. The Blues couldn't get anything and were threatened as early as 30 seconds into the match when Sergio Aguero found himself 1v1 with the goalkeeper and missed. After a series of fantastic saves by Asmir Begovic, Aguero finally found the back of the net around the half hour mark. Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho scored the next two goals late in the game, but there wasn't much doubt about Manchester City winning this one as they were in control the entire match. Chelsea have a lot to fix by next weekend, while City seem to be on cruise-control at the moment. Aug 16 - 12:53 PM

Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that his South American contingent – Sergio Aguero / Martin Demichelis / Pablo Zabaleta / Fernandinho – look set to miss the opening weekend of the new PL season following their involvement in this summers’ Copa America tournament.

Having played until July – Argentina were beaten finalists – Pellegrini is keen to give his players around a month off ahead of a tough Premier League campaign which means none are expected to return to training until later this week. The quartet could be ready within a fortnight with Chelsea the target at the Etihad [GW2] although starting may be out of the question. City have already been rocked by the news that new signing Fabian Delph – hamstring – is out of the opener, however Yaya Toure will be fine after he returned to Manchester as a precaution – suspected concussion - following a collision with goalkeeper Keylor Navas during Fridays' friendly defeat at the hands of Real Madrid.

Sergio Aguero is expected to be available for next weekends’ Copa America quarter final after coach Gerardo Martino decided not to risk his star striker in the final group game against Jamaica.

Concerned Man City supporters watched as their star player trudged off during the dying moments of Argentina’s win over Uruguay because of a shoulder injury. Aguero grabbed the only goal of a close-fought contest scoring a diving header from a Pablo Zabaleta cross but the Argentine hit-man landed awkwardly. Post-match scans revealed only minor damage but Martino did err on the side of caution with their place already assured in the knockout phase "Kun has an injury problem. If not, he would be in from the start. It is not worth taking chances with a player like him, especially as he is fighting for that position with two great players."

Sergio Aguero proves the difference for Argentina in a 1-0 win over Copa America holders Uruguay…

After a slow start, being held 2-2 by Paraguay, last year’s World Cup runner-sup now lead Group B after a narrow and typically testy victory. The lavish talents of Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria were outdone by a Man City combination early in the second half, Aguero providing a sharp near-post headed finish to Pablo Zabaleta’s cross. Aguero has carried his exceptional end of season PL form into the tournament, scoring two in two and 11 in his last nine over all. His name has been linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer but insists he is happy at the Etihad and has targeted winning the Ballon d’Or while at City. This should be great news for City fans as it could mean a long stay – the trophy has been the joint property of Messrs Ronaldo and Messi for the last seven years, with the mortal world playing for 3rd place.

Man City’s top scorer carried on where he left off in the PL with his first international hat-trick v Bolivia.

Argentina warmed up for the upcoming Copa America with a 5-0 romp v Bolivia, with all five goals made in Manchester. United’s Angel Di Maria started and ended the scoring, with Aguero hitting his first treble for his country in a little over 20 minutes. The striker – who is reportedly top of Real Madrid’s shopping list this summer – contributed 26 goals from 33 PL matches, ending with nine in the last seven games. He will spearhead Argentina’s attempt to win their first Copa America title since 1993, alongside a stellar cast of goal scoring talent. Lionel Messi (58 goals this season) and Carlos Tevez (just the 29) will link up after doing battle in the Champions League final, with Higuain (who also hit 29 for Napoli this term) standing by. The Copa America kicks off on June 11th.

Real look poised to dangle Karim Benzema to lure Sergio Aguero away from Man City this summer.

Spanish media outlets (including AS) are reporting that Rafa Benitez has targeted Sergio Aguero as the man to lead a new look Real Madrid attack next season. With current number ‘9’ Benzema being sacrificed to sweeten the deal. Apparently, Rafa will disband the current 4-3-3 – and the BBC (Bale, Benzema, Cristiano) front three – in favour of a 4-2-3-1 formation. Preferring Ronaldo in the central striker role from his current squad, but ideally wanting Aguero to lead the line. The City man returned 28 goals and 6 assists from 29 matches last season and will be top of many Fantasy manager’s lists if he remains in the PL. The less prolific Frenchman (15 goals from 29 La Liga outings) won't.

Manchester City officially ended QPR's stay in the top flight in convincing fashion, scoring six times in the 6-0 massacre.

Too many goals to address individually but Aguero unsurprisingly led the way scoring the first one in the 4th minute to set the tone, then adding two more to go along with a fabulous free kick strike by Aleksandar Kolarov, and 2nd half goals from James Milner and David Silva. The Sky Blues sensed their opponent had already thrown in the towel and took advantage without mercy.

Sergio Aguero continued to give Tottenham nightmares as he scored the only goal of the match to snap Manchester City's road losing streak in a 0-1 final.

The now-former champions of the Premier League did not let Chelsea's title clinch earlier in the day and their poor road form stop them. Above all of that is Sergio Aguero's goal rate against Spurs, whom he has had more success against than any other opponent. A swift counter-attack in the 22nd minute provided the only goal of the match. David Silva had loads of space as he entered the final third of Spurs and timed a perfect pass to Aguero sprinting into the box. At a tight angle, he smashed it inside the near post for his 23rd goal of the season. In addition, their defending was as effective as it has been in recent memory, shutting down some decent chances by Tottenham. Now two goals ahead of Kane for the Golden Boot, Kun will be licking his chops with a home match against QPR next.

Manchester City got back on track today with a relatively comfortable 2-0 win over West Ham United, leaving them seven points clear of Liverpool for the final Champions League spot.

It was a walk in the park for City, as their opponent gave very little effort from the opening whistle and it was 2-0 and too late for the Hammers by the time they started to come to life. Jesus Navas was man of the match, and his attempted cross to Sergio Aguero in the 18th minute led to a James Collins own goal. The City pair would team up again in the 36th minute, as a turnover by Stewart Downing saw the Sky Blues on the break, with Aguero dribbling down the center and Navas flying open down the right. Aguero played a 1-2, Navas teed him up, and the Argentine became the first player to reach 20 goals on the season. On the down side, David Silva took an elbow to the jaw and was stretchered off, so his availability next week is already a major doubt.

Sergio Aguero scored twice but Manchester City were well beaten by their rivals at Old Trafford.

Aguero opened the scoring after neat work from David Silva before Manchester United charged back to take a 4-1 lead. The Argentine grabbed a consolation in injury time but it was all too little, too late. City have now lost six of their last eight games and are at risk of missing out on Champions League football if they can't reverse this shocking slump quickly.

Sergio Aguero grabbed two goals as City triumphed for the first time ever in the Premier League at Stoke but the night ended on a rather sour note as the Argentine was replaced with 20 minutes to go because of a back complaint.

However sadness was soon turned to joy as the striker took to social media just hours later to allay any fears confirming his withdrawal was only a precaution. The win for City helped get their title aspirations on track while Aguero grabbed his 20th and 21st goals of the season – his first since returning from a knee ligament injury in January. Pellegrini reverted back to a familiar and preferred 4-5-1 formation and City looked more like last seasons champions, form which has deserted them recently. With both Stevan Jovetic and Edin Dzeko occupying a place on the bench plus the arrival of Wilfried Bony which will only serve to intensify competition it will be interesting to see how the Chilean manages his squad over the coming weeks.

Sergio Aguero scored his first goals since December as Manchester City secured an impressive 4-1 victory at Stoke.

After a poor run of form this was an important result for Manchester City, riding their luck in the first half before powering through to a vital win in the second period. The away side took the lead through Sergio Aguero's run and drilled finish but the scores were level when Peter Crouch stooped to head a deserved equaliser for Stoke before half-time. Manuel Pellegrini's team talk worked wonders as his side came out with new energy after the break and James Milner nodded them in front, before Aguero grabbed his second goal from the penalty spot after David Silva had been brought down. Samir Nasri sealed a 4-1 win to keep the Champions within seven points of leaders Chelsea, while Stoke remain in mid-table.

The latest reports suggest that Sergio Aguero will be out for a minimum of four weeks after suffering a knee injury during the opening minutes of Saturdays’ British Premier League clash against Everton at the Etihad Stadium.

News on Sunday broke that the Argentine had strained lateral [outer] knee ligaments with the striker expected to be out for around a month initially – club representatives have confirmed the forward will target a return for the FA Cup in January or the fixture at Goodison Park the following weekend. The prognosis ends any speculation regarding a season ending injury and although disappointing - damage to the cruciate would’ve meant a significant period out. His absence presents Stevan Jovetic – recovering from a minor knock – and Edin Dzeko – just back from a calf injury – with an opportunity for an extended run in the first team. The highly regarded Spanish youngster Jose Pozo will also hope for increased involvement in the first team.

Sergio Aguero was forced off the pitch in the 5th minute of Manchester City's clash against Everton with a knee injury.

The striker went down early on and limped off the pitch in tears. He looked to be in a lot of pain and it was a very disappointing sight to see for both fantasy managers and soccer lovers. If Aguero has any ligament damage, Edin Dzeko could be good add in fantasy. We'll know more about the injury in the coming days so check back for an update early next week.

Sergio Aguero scored two goals and added an assist in 74 minutes of play Wednesday night.

After conceding an early fluke goal off a deflected clearance from Pablo Zabaleta, City controlled possession, banging in two first half and two second half goals in a 4-1 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Aguero was nothing short of spectacular, finishing brilliantly on both goals and assisting on Stevan Jovetic's goal too. The Argentine striker leads the league in goals with 14 and is a must-own in all fantasy formats.
