Manchester City did manage to win over Burnley late this morning, but the victory was also marred by the injury of the mainstay striker, Sergio Aguero.
On the 30th matchday match of the Premier League earlier this morning, Pep Guardiola’s troops played at home. They then won without any hardships, a five-goal flush was suggested by Citizen to Burnley headquarters, without reply.
Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez each scored two goals in the match, while one more goal was created by senior playmaker David Silva.
These three points are very important for Pep Guardiola’s troops, although it does not affect the position in the standings. But on the one hand, the victory must also be paid off with the injury of Sergio Aguero.
Yes, the Argentine striker found an injury when violated by Ben Mee in the penalty box just before the break, he was immediately pulled out afterwards. Aguero’s position was immediately replaced by Gabriel Jesus.
After the match, coach Pep Guardiola looked very worried about the condition of the flagship striker. Although not yet know how severe the injury was, but it seems to be categorized as a severe injury.
“That doesn’t look good. Something happened on his knee. We will see tomorrow and will see what happens with it. He felt something on his knee and he will have a hard time in the last month, but we’ll see.
“The doctor said tomorrow we will know more, but at the moment it does not look good.” Guardiola said on the club’s official website.
It is very unfortunate if Aguero to pull over until the end of this season, especially if he cannot play in the European Champions League.
However, regardless of Aguero’s condition, Pep Guardiola continues to flatter the performance of his players in the last two matches which ended consecutive wins.
“We played very well and it was a good and solid performance, especially at the start. We give a good edge above the fifth rank for next season’s Champions League qualification. We are very close to qualifying.” He said.
Unfortunately, the winning streak does not necessarily affect Manchester City’s position in the standings. They remain in second place, far behind Liverpool.
