Aguero’s four goal haul was not the biggest highlight of the day as the center referee took all the attention for himself, awarding four penalties in one premier league match for the first time since 1978.
Aguero converted two of the three penalties awarded to Manchester City, missing one while Soldado saw his first half strike from the spot saved by Joe Hart. Aguero scored a further two goals from open play to finish the game with four goals against a Tottenham side that had Federico Fazio sent off for pulling back Aguero when the Argentine was in a goal scoring position. There was little or no fight in Spurs despite looking like they were going to put up a fight after Eriksen’s strike.
Manchester City’s win means they have temporarily closed the gap on Chelsea to two points as Chelsea take on Crystal Palace later today. Aguero’s goal scoring form has also seen him become joint top goal scorer with Diego Costa on nine premier league goals
