Sergio Aguero has been struggling to hit his top form in the 2015-16 season, but even then he is indispensable to the team according to manager Manuel Pellegrini. The manager was speaking after watching his star striker scored twice in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace.
This victory made it five unbeaten games in the Premier league for the blues. But disappointment comes from the fact that we have been able to take only three wins during this period. As well, Arsenal have been able to stretch their advantage in the league.
Aguero finished as the league’s top scorer last season by a comfortable margin, but it looks like he will struggle to retain the Golden Boot award in this campaign. A return of 10 goals in 15 appearances does sound great, but it looks mediocre in comparison with the figures put by the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Jamie Vardy this season. Furthermore, five of the 10 goals scored by the Argentine have all come in just one game. There is little doubt that Pellegrini will want to see Aguero return to his best form sooner rather than later. For the time being, he is just about happy that his star striker has delivered yet again.
City’s next match will be to take revenge on West Ham at Upton Park.“It’s impossible to replace Sergio. He’s a top player and it’s very difficult to replace him. I think for every team to replace their top players is very difficult.We can play without Sergio, but of course we’ll be a stronger team with him playing at his best performance level. He’s not a player you can replace so easily. But I hope he will finish the season without any more injuries,” said manager Pellegrini. Fabian Delph and David Silva scored the goals for City.
