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. May 10 - 10:26 AM

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.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero is (unsurprisingly) the top striker pick for Week 14.

It should've been another 30 point week for Aguero against Southampton in Week 13. Wrongly booked for a dive when clearly fouled in the box, which denied him the chance to score from the spot, contributed two assist and missed a glorious one-on-one chance. Sunderland beware - the Argentine is unlikely to go scoreless for three Premier League games in a row.

Manchester City were able to leapfrog Southampton and move to 2nd in the table after defeating the Saints in a match which featured a terrible decision early on by the referee that cost Sergio Aguero a penalty chance.

You may see the name Mike Jones trending in social media right now, the referee behind one of the worst decisions seen in quite some time. Aguero was dribbling into the area and Jose Fonte tripped him up. The ref, instead of rewarding a penalty, slapped Aguero with a yellow card for simulation. The remainder of the first half was rather uneventful and looked to be anyone's game, but the Sky Blues got things going in attack in the 2nd half. Yaya Toure opened the scoring, giving him two game-winning goals in successive matches. Then, even with defender Eliaquim Mangala forced off with a second yellow, City began to boss things. Substitute Frank Lampard and Gael Clichy would both score to pull away and both were assisted by Aguero, saving his fantasy day. The race to catch Chelsea rages on for City.

Sergio Aguero's hat-trick - including two goals in the last five minutes - kept Manchester City's Champions League hopes alive in a dramatic victory over Bayern Munich.

The stats tell you all you need to know about Aguero's form this season. 17 goals in 14 starts in all competitions is a remarkable return and the Argentine is - almost single-handedly - keeping Manchester City's title and Champions League aspirations alive. Manuel Pellegrini's men did their best to throw away another lead despite Bayern Munich being down to 10 men for the majority of the match, but Aguero was their saviour, scoring twice in the final five minutes. Win in Rome on 10 December and City should progress to the knock-out stages, but even a draw will be enough if Bayern beat CSKA Moscow.

Sergio Aguero continued his sizzling form by scoring twice for Manchester City, but QPR gave the Sky Blues enough problems to end things on level terms, 2-2.

Chelsea widened the gap today on perhaps their best competition in the race for the league title this season as City were battled for 90 minutes by a gritty Rangers side. Aguero is no stranger to success at Loftus Road, it was the sight of the goal that won City the title in 2012. In inclement weather, Aguero was as pesky as ever, and scored both of his goals in similar fashion. Each instance he received a deep pass in the area draped by defenders but was able to shake them off and score like a machine. The assists were key, as Eliaquim Mangala first and Yaya Toure later, both executed deep accurate passes that allowed Aguero to do the rest. Unfortunately, the defense was shaky and that led to dropping two vital points in the title race. Martin Demichelis was responsible for the own goal that would prove to leave things level. Vincent Kompany is needed back in a hurry.

Manchester City were able to defeat their crosstown rivals Manchester United 1-0, with the lone goal provided by Sergio Aguero.

City looked to have the edge in the opening half hour but once Chris Smalling was sent off, they had the Red Devils under their spell. Near the end of the half, Aguero went down in the box for what looked like a possible penalty and a similar incident occurred on the hour mark. Then, in the 63rd minute, Yaya Toure found Gael Clichy out wide and the left back whipped in a low cross to Aguero in the box and the Argentine sensation delivered a smart finish to give him 10 goals on the season, passing Diego Costa for the chase to the Golden Boot. United to their credit put up a fight to the bitter end, limiting City to the lone goal, when the match could have easily been busted wide open. Costa may have exploded onto the scene but Aguero makes a statement today that he is the top forward to own in fantasy.

Sergio Aguero had a monster game, scoring all four of Manchester City's goals, as the Sky Blues cruise past Tottenham, 4-1.

Aguero was a bit greedy today as Pellegrini went with a lone striker and the superstar forward had a superstar day, grabbing all the goals. He made two goals from the penalty spot and could have had five goals in total but missed yet another penalty chance. His effort today shoots him right up to a share of top scorer in the league, matching Diego Costa on nine. Today's performance will break the hearts of all who did not have him in their fantasy XI's, while those that did invest can pop the champagne bottle.
