Aguero nets hat-trick as Man City thrash Huddersfield


"I don't think he would have a Kevin De Bruyne or a David Silva".

Yes, it meant there was a period where he missed key games, but the club and his manager insisted family comes first.

Pep Guardiola paid tribute to David Silva yesterday after the Manchester City veteran enjoyed an emotional first game of the season in front of his eight-month-old son Mateo.

Manchester City will be disappointed if they don't roll over Huddersfield, who looked dire in their opening match.

The Spaniard took to Twitter to announce that he was taking his son home, posting: "We're finally going home!" 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 are spoiled for midfield choice as Juergen Klopp, manager of rivals Liverpool, noted on Friday when he told Sky Sports how sorry he was about De Bruyne's misfortune.

It was a reminder from City and Aguero that they can cope without Belgian playmaker De Bruyne, who suffered a knee injury earlier this week that could rule him out for up to three months.

A hat-trick from Sergio Aguero saw the Argentine star steal the show, while Gabriel Jesus and David Silva also netted for the Citizens, with an own-goal from Terence Kongolo adding more misery for a Terriers side that could grab a consolation goal through Jon Gorenc Stankovic.

As for Huddersfield, they fell to a 3-0 defeat to Chelsea in their season opener.

BURNLEY, England - Watford cruised to a 3-1 victory over Burnley on Sunday to extend the London side's flawless start to the season and a place among the Premier League's early pacesetters.

But Guardiola believes David Silva too could be rejuvenated now that he has chose to end his distinguished World Cup-winning global career.

One idea would be to reverse the game and stage it at the Etihad, but this would leave City facing the prospect of finishing the season with four away games out of the last five.

Guardiola said: "He trained the last two or three training sessions".

"The truth is we are together for two years and a couple of weeks and I've never been so happy with him as I am now".

Man City's first-choice stopper was also the world's most expensive goalkeeper for a season before his compatriot Alisson and then Kepa Arrizabalaga made the switch to the Premier League this summer for £65m and £71.6m respectively.
