Aguero Gets Hat-Trick As City Beat Huddersfield

Sergio Aguero was unstoppable Sunday as the striker scored a superb hat-trick in a thumping win over Huddersfield.

 

Aguero opened the scoring in the first half before adding two more goals after the break to complete his 13th career hat-trick and ninth in the Premier League.

 

The defending champions, who beat Arsenal 2-0 in their opening match, lost only once at home in 2017-18, and victory never looked in doubt against a Huddersfield team who have now been beaten in their first two games.

 

The Terriers did manage to hold City at bay for 25 minutes but were undone when goalkeeper Ederson picked out Aguero with a pinpoint pass and the striker drew out Ben Hamer before lifting the ball into the net.

 

Gabriel Jesus added a second seven minutes later with a crisp low strike from the edge of the area, before Aguero pounced on a Hamer error to stab in his second.

 

Jon Gorenc Stankovic scored just before half-time to give the visitors some hope but that did not last long as David Silva scored early in the second half from a brilliant free-kick.

 

Aguero wrapped up his hat-trick with a smart flick from Benjamin Mendy‘s cross – before a Terence Kongolo own goal sealed an emphatic win for an impressive City.

 

Pep Guardiola‘s side are top of the table and have scored eight goals in two games, conceding just one. Huddersfield, meanwhile, drop to the bottom on goal difference.
