Manchester City's Argentine front-man has posted a message of congratulations for Steven Jovetic after his performance against Liverpool.

Sergio Aguero has taken to Instagram to congratulate his Manchester City teammate Stevan Jovetic on his man-of-the-match award from last night.

The Montenegrin forward scored twice in Manchester City’s 3-1 victory over Liverpool at the Etihad, which sent out a message to the rest of the Premier League.

Aguero was also on target for Manuel Pellegrini’s men, after he came off the substitutes’ bench to secure the three points for the hosts and he has been quick to praise his strike-partner.

The jet-heeled attacker posted the picture, shown above, with the caption: "Con , with @stevanj35 . #ManOfTheMatch #Congratulations #HombreDelPartido #Felicidades."

City look strong as they start their defence of their title and Jovetic’s form has been a major plus point from the summer.

The striker, who was purchased from Fiorentina last year, struggled to make an impact in his first season in English football, but he is showing signs of promise already during this campaign.

After an excellent pre-season for the club, he has already opened his goal-scoring account and he showed how clinical he could be last night.

The task for him now will be to keep his place in the team, given the strength of City’s squad, but with some more performances like his one last night he may be picking up a few more congratulatory messages as the campaign progresses.
