Sergio Aguero to captain Manchester City against Wolverhampton Wanderers

Share

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had a completely different starting XI from that which faced Everton on Sunday and struggled against second-tier side Norwich City before substitute Eddie Nketiah saved the Gunners from a shock defeat. "But it didn't knock me down".

Aguero proved to be a very big exception to that rule, notching an incredible 30 goals in 48 appearances and helping City to a first league title in 44 years. "That helped me a lot to overcome the injury".

Meanwhile, Bernardo Silva will not face disciplinary action from the FA over allegations that he dived to win the penalty that Aguero converted against Burnley.

"I get on with Sergio very well", Jesus told Premier League Productions. He's an incredible guy.

The Argentina striker drew level with Eric Brook's club record of 177 goals with a penalty against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday but he was made to wait to claim the record outright by Wolves, with Guardiola blaming the EFL Cup match ball for his team's troubles. He's a fantastic person and I'm a fan of his.

Aguero could break the record when the Blues host Wolves on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup fourth round.

Jesus is unlikely to play on Tuesday night and have the chance to extend a remarkable run that has seen him go unbeaten for nearly a full calendar year playing for City, Palmeiras and Brazil. When you have a good relationship off the pitch, it's easier to bring it on to the pitch.

After thrilling English soccer by scoring 42 goals in 13 games this season, Manchester City's attacking juggernaut was finally halted in the English League Cup. "We both defend the shirt of this club, so we pull together on the pitch, the same way we get along off the pitch".

'I support him and I hope he can beat the record as soon as possible.

After what felt like an eternity without success for City supporters, Aguero was suddenly helping the club to become regular contenders for the biggest honours.
