Sergio Agüero made an impressive debut for Manchester City and he scored twice and assisted on another as Manchester City beat Swansea City 4-0.
Aguero started the game on the bench as Man City lacked that cutting edge in front of goal in the first half. Swansea goalkeeper Michal Vorm was impressive in his debut for the Welsh site making a string of saves while David Silva and Gareth Barry both hit the crossbar
But eventually Man City’s class told in the 57th minute when Vorm failed to hold Adam Johnson’s curling effort into the path of Džeko, who tapped in. The goal was Roberto Mancini’s cue to bring on Agüero, and he made an immediate impression and he got on the end of a move involving Yaya Touré and Micah Richards.
That good was just an appetizer for the Argentinian international. Three minutes later he lobbed the advancing Vorm before acrobatically keeping the ball in play with a great cutback for Silva to finish neatly. The ball had seemed to be heading out of play, but Aguero somehow managed to flick it back over his head for Silva to finish with some ease.
But the pick of the goals was the last one, which came in added time when Agüero unleashed an unstoppable drive from 25 yards. In thirty minutes Aguero had two goals and as assist and Manchester City sent out a marker to the rest of the Premier League that they will be a title contender this season.
Man City boss Roberto Mancini said after the game:
“What Sergio Aguero achieved did not surprise me. He is a fantastic striker. However, he can get better than he showed against Swansea. I am sure of that. He is not yet 100 per cent fit. He only has 10 days training with us and he will get better.”
