“Sergio Agüero is one of the best, best, best strikers in the world, without a doubt,” Pep Guardiola stated after the Argentine striker scored his ninth Premier League hat-trick in a 6-1 demolition of Huddersfield Town.
The Terriers managed to keep City out until midway through the first half when one of goalkeeper Ederson’s accurate long balls down the pitch picked out Agüero and the club record goal scorer delicately lifted the ball over Ben Hamer into the net.
Gabriel Jesus added a second before Agüero was able to stab in a second following an error by Hamer.
Huddersfield pulled a goal back but David Silva’s brilliant free-kick made it four before Agüero completed his hat-trick with a superb flick from a Benjamin Mendy cross. An own goal wrapped up the rout but it was Agüero who stole the headlines.
