Paul Scholes: Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero my player of last weekend for Tottenham Hotspur heroics

Sergio Aguero - Suisse vs Argentina

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes was impressed with Sergio Aguero’s performance for Manchester City against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League last weekend.

Manchester City star Sergio Aguero is one of the best strikers in the world, and he showed that against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

On Saturday, Aguero scored all four goals in the Citizens’ 4-1 victory over the North London club at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old failed to convert a penalty, but that did not prevent Manchester United legend Paul Scholes from singing his praises.

‘My player of last weekend was City’s Sergio Aguero’, the 39-year-old wrote in The Independent. ‘You cannot argue with four goals, even if he did miss one of his two penalties. He also did much to dispel the suggestion that he cannot play as the lone striker’.

The stats below tell everything about a truly majestic performance from Aguero against a 10-man Tottenham side.

Aguero joined City from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011 and has established himself as a key player for the Citizens.

During his time at the Etihad, the Argentina international striker has often been injured, but he showed against Spurs that, when fit, he is one of the deadliest and most lethal strikers on the planet.
