Pep Guardiola: 'Sergio Aguero is at the top of his game'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola claims that Sergio Aguero's current form is the best that he has seen during his time at the club.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has claimed that Sergio Aguero's current form is the best that he has seen during his time at the club.

The Argentine has scored 15 goals already this calendar year, including four in one game against Leicester City, a hat-trick against Newcastle United and the opening goal in the EFL Cup final against Arsenal last month.

Aguero was unable to add to his tally during the 1-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday, but Guardiola insists that there is far more to his game than simply scoring goals.

"Since we were together here with Sergio I think the last month, two months is the best Sergio I have seen," he told reporters.

"Not just scoring goals, but he doesn't lose one ball. He makes a movement for runs in behind, he is the first guy to make a high press, to help that second line by more comfortable with the ball.

"I am so pleased. Ok, he didn't score, it's not a problem, he will score in the future, but he did really well."

Aguero is just one goal away from becoming the first player to ever score 200 goals for the club.
