Sergio Aguero spot on as Manchester City get yet another penalty


Sergio Aguero set Manchester City on their way to victory at Stoke by scoring a penalty - the fourth spot kick Pep Guardiola's side have already earned this season.

Aguero has taken all four, but has a success rate of just 50% - having missed twice in the midweek Champions League rout of Steaua Bucharest.

He dispatched his effort at the Bet365 Stadium with ease and added another goal in the first half during City's 4-1 win against former manager Mark Hughes' Potters.

Aguero got the chance to open the scoring when Ryan Shawcross was adjudged to have been holding Nicolas Otamendi at a corner.

It was too much for some rival fans to take.

City soon showed they can score via a different method, as Aguero headed in Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick.

Referee Mike Dean wasn't finished with his penalty awarding.

But Nolito added a late brace as Guardiola kept up his 100% record as City boss.
