Aguero double leads Man City to win at Burnley

Aguero double leads Man City to win at Burnley

Which is why yesterday's 2-1 win at Turf Moor will quite possibly go down as one of Guardiola's most pleasing victories of the season, setting things up nicely for this Saturday's clash with Chelsea.

GOOALL! Burnley host Manchester City in this English Premier League clash on November 26 at the Turf Moor Stadium. "He had a really good game", said Guardiola.

"Today was so important, to have won, because it is so complicated to control it, you have to defend long balls, they play wide with the full backs and wingers, crosses, corners, throw ins and free kicks".

- Manchester City have kept just two clean sheets in their 13 Premier League games under Guardiola. Marney drills home into the bottom corner, from Otamendi's clearance under pressure from Keane from a Robinson free-kick from the halfway line. Despite this, it was yet another odd moment from Nicolas Otamendi who continues to do insane things at the most random times.

"It's hard to defend against long balls", said Guardiola.

But it was a rare moment of City encouragement after a lethargic start to the match and they deservedly fell behind.

"The last five or six weeks they've played incredible, clean sheets".




MF Dean Marney, 7 - A goal, a yellow card and an injury made it a busy day for Marney, even if his game was ultimately cut short.

Both of Aguero's goals were scored from inside the six-yard box, his first in the 37th minute after the ball was bundled into his path unwittingly off Argentina teammate Nicolas Otamendi. I thought the players delivered what I wanted them to deliver exceptionally well.

The result moves City to the top of the league with Chelsea and Liverpool yet to play.

In honesty, there was only one team trying to play football here, and it sure as hell wasn't Sean Dyche's Burnley. When I found myself looking at the fixture list, I pencilled Burnley away as a tough game purely because of the 1980s-like atmosphere that is created in the wooden Turf Moor. Two blips in a really good gameplan.

"I'm disappointed in the outcome, make no mistake, no matter who we're playing, a win is what I enjoy - but we went about it the right way, a massive reaction, massively different performance from Monday night, and we have to take that on the road now".

He had been called into Premier League action for the first time since 2012 after Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton, the current England squad player, damaged a calf in training.

In the first half, the influential Coutinho was stretchered off with his right ankle in a brace after hurting himself in a challenge by Didier Ndong.
