Manchester City vs. Huddersfield Town - Football Match Report

"The pass was outstanding, the control by Sergio Aguero".

Sergio Aguero bagged a hat-trick as Manchester City annihilated Huddersfield 6-1 at the Etihad on Sunday.

City had 14 shots on target during the 90 minutes, and hat-trick hero Aguero had four of those, and it was to be Aguero's ninth Premier League hat-trick, and he is now only two behind Alan Shearer, who holds the record on 11.

"More clinical? Three goals a game is okay".

That would see him miss crucial fixtures against Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United, as well as the first two rounds of fixtures in the Champions League.

David Silva curled home a stunning free kick shortly after the interval, while Aguero completing his third hat-trick of the calendar year with 15 minutes remaining.

No matter - City restored a three-goal advantage just three minutes into the second half with a wonderful free-kick from 20 yards from David Silva that left Hamer flat-footed - the flawless way to mark his 250th Premier League appearance.

David Silva had set the tone with a majestic opening half-hour, torturing the Huddersfield defence and allowing the City supporters to forget about the absence of De Bruyne.

The bleak Real Madrid stat that wouldn't have come under Zidane
Real face an Atletico side who finished above them in LaLiga last term and also won the Europa League. Ramos will captain the Julen Lopetegui's men on Sunday against Getafe in their La Liga opener.

Huddersfield had pulled a goal back just before half time through Jon Stankovic but David Wagner's men were totally outclassed.

This could be Bernardo Silva's moment after his scintillating start to the season to make the grade from City's favourite luxury item on the bench to the main man.

Two wins from two at a canter for Guardiola's boys.

Kongolo turns it into his own net, but that goal was all Leroy Sane! 6-1.

Aguero, who turned 30 in the close-season, has now scored 14 times in his last eight Premier League games at City's Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City will be disappointed if they don't roll over Huddersfield, who looked dire in their opening match. They are all playing for second place behind a City side that are showing remarkable similarities to Barcelona's 2011 Champions League-winning vintage under Pep.

City granted the people behind "All Or Nothing", an Amazon franchise who has worked with New Zealand rugby and National Football League teams in the past, access to the inner workings of Pep Guardiola's side for a series that was released yesterday.
