A damp day in East Manchester saw the Citizens shrug off a 2 game skid to take a 3-1 victory over Southampton at the Etihad. A couple of penalty appeals (one apiece to each team) were ignored by the ref, and both teams gave it their all in the attack.
So the talking points from the win of City are
1. Aguero is brittle
Returning after a near 2 month injury layoff, Sergio Aguero may have just injured himself again when he landed awkwardly around the 64th minute, and was limping to the dugout. When he is fit, without a doubt he is the most lethal striker in the Premier League, but City really miss him during his lengthy injury spells especially during crunch matches.
The club and it’s fans will be hopeful that it’s just a minor knock that can be quickly shaken off. Especially, with the likes of Sterling and de Bruyne on the wings, he is the best to pounce on such chances.
