Agüero strikes for Manchester City before retiring with injury

Sergio Agüero opened the scoring for Manchester City on the way to a 5-1 destruction of Tottenham Hotspur today, before the Argentina international was taken off with a muscle complaint in news that will worry national team coach Alejandro Sabella ahead of the World Cup.

Agüero, Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko, Stevan Jovetic and Vincent Kompany were on target as City followed their 6-0 thrashing of Spurs in the reverse fixture with another thrilling exhibition of their attacking talents.

They were helped on their way by a controversial decision to send off Tottenham defender Danny Rose for a foul on Dzeko, for which City were awarded the penalty that Toure converted for the second goal.

Yet they ruthlessly exploited the extra man to move to 53 points, one clear of Arsenal and three ahead of Chelsea, who were frustrated by a fiercely resilient West Ham side at Stamford Bridge.

A muscle tear had previously kept El Kun out of action for a month, the former Independiente striker only returning to first-team duty on January 15.
