Aguero Scores Four Goals As City Whip Spurs

Sergio Aguero scored four goals in a game of four penalties as Manchester City recorded a memorable 4-1 win over 10-man Tottenham Hotspur at Eastlands on Saturday.
Aguero’s impressive haul means the Argentina striker is now City’s top-scorer in the Premier League era, with 61 goals in 95 appearances.
He opened the scoring and, after the outstanding Christian Eriksen pulled Tottenham level, Aguero added the hosts’ second with a penalty.
Aguero had another first-half spot-kick saved by Hugo Lloris, but Joe Hart stopped Roberto Soldado’s penalty before Aguero converted his third attempt of the day after a foul from Federico Fazio that earned the Tottenham defender a red card.
Former Atletico Madrid star Aguero then added his fourth goal with 15 minutes left to secure a comfortable win as the reigning champions kept the pressure on leaders Chelsea.
After the 4-4 draw between Bradford City and Derby County in 2000, it was only the second time in Premier League history that four penalties have been awarded in one game.
The only downside for City was an injury that saw veteran midfielder Frank Lampard carried off in the first half with a thigh problem.
After the chaos that saw them concede just 13 seconds into a 6-0 defeat at Eastlands in November, Tottenham’s afternoon actually began reasonably well this time.
