Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero on fire vs Bournemouth on Saturday

Sergio Aguero reached 400 career goals as the Manchester City striker inspired the champions’ 3-1 win at Bournemouth.

With Premier League leaders Liverpool off to a perfect start with three successive victories, City are already under pressure to keep pace.

Pep Guardiola’s side did just that thanks to Aguero as City’s record goalscorer hit another milestone with a clinical double in the south-coast sunshine.

Raheem Sterling was also on the scoresheet — making it six goals in four games this term for the England winger — as City’s second win of the season lifted them to within two points of Liverpool.

It was a landmark day all round for City, with captain David Silva involved in all three of the goals on his 400th appearance for the club.

“We felt Bournemouth’s physicality, a nice three points and a big compliment to the players, a few things to improve, that’s good it’s happened when we are winning games,” Guardiola said.

“The quality of our players in front made the difference and we won the game.”

Guardiola was less enthused by a VAR review that denied City a penalty when Jefferson Lerma appeared to trip Silva.

City were last week left frustrated during a 2-2 draw with Tottenham when a last-gasp goal from Gabriel Jesus was disallowed by VAR due to a handball against Aymeric Laporte.

Asked if City deserved a spot-kick, Guardiola replied in an sardonic manner: “Penalty? No. It was clear hands last game, clear hands. A penalty today? No, please.

“The challenge this season will be amazing for us after winning back-to-back two titles, the challenge will be great.”
