Pep Guardiola was full of praise for Sergio Aguero after his hat-trick helped Manchester City to a massive 6-1 win versus Huddersfield Town on Sunday.
The Premier League might not even be two weeks old yet but we have already learned a lot from what we have seen so far. Manchester United might have three points under its belt, but the side did not look convincing in its 2-1 victory over Leicester City and looked very poor during a 3-2 loss to Brighton.
United's cross-city rivals on the other hand, and the defending Premier League Champions, Manchester City have been everything we have expected of them so far. Pep Guardiola's men started the season with an impressive 2-0 win over Arsenal away from home, and then flattened Huddersfield Town 6-1 with an almost flawless display from everyone in the side, particular Sergio Aguero who netted three of the six goals.
The Argentine opened the floodgates with 25 minutes gone, added his second, and City's third, ten minutes later, and then completed his hat-trick in the 75th minute. Aguero's strike partner Gabriel Jesus was also on the scoresheet for City along with David Silva. The blue half of Manchester was obviously extremely happy with the result, and that includes City manager Pep Guardiola.
Sky Sports caught up with the Blues' boss after the match and the Spaniard was gushing with praise for his hat-trick hero. "The spirit since he came back from the holidays after the World Cup... he is in incredible condition," Guardiola revealed. The manager even went as far as to say he has never seen Aguero as good as he is right now. A scary prospect for his Premier League rivals considering he has scored already 143 goals in the last seven seasons.
There is still a lot of soccer left to play of course as the season has only just begun, but judging by Aguero's performance versus Huddersfield and Guardiola's comments after the match, it looks as if the Argentine striker and the rest of the club is in for another successful season. It is certainly going to take something special to stop City from making it back to back Premier League titles.
