Aguero Scores Four As Iheanacho, Ndidi Go Down With Leicester At City

Netting City's second in the 48th minute after Jamie Vardy had levelled proceedings, Sergio Aguero simply stole the show with three more second-half goals to kill off the game.

"He's an authentic legend of this club", City manager Pep Guardiola said.

Despite their slack second half display, Alexandre Lacazette missed a glorious chance in stoppage time when he was clean through but slotted wide of Hugo Lloris' far post and given Spurs' wastefulness you got the sense Arsenal were going to nick a point. "He has a special talent in the box".

Aguero now has 28 goals in all competitions this season -- eight more than Sterling.

"Sergio has an wonderful talent in the box, so we try to create a lot of chances to score the goals he does, and he always does". He has also contributed an impressive two goals and four assists from central defence, making him a top attacking threat.

"When one player is able to score four goals, he deserves all the credit and the nice words. It's poor to not bring a young player, really poor".

"I said many times the only thing they (referees) have to do is protect the players", City boss Pep Guardiola said after his side's 2-0 FA Cup fourth round win in the Welsh capital.

The Foxes have taken just one point from their last four Premier League away games, having been unbeaten in the previous seven.

Speaking to reporters after the game Wenger believed his Arsenal side should have won the game by half time, even if Spurs dominated after the break.

"He fought, he played really good and he scored goals and it's so important, we needed it".

Riyad Mahrez has at last returned to training for Leicester City after his self-imposed exile from the Foxes squad and could feature on Saturday against Manchester City, according to Sky Sports.

And Puel claimed both he and the Algeria global will not focus their efforts on the rest of the season without any issues.

"I've said a lot of times it was important Riyad came back to work hard in training", he said.

Leicester City (squad): Schmeichel, Hamer, Jakupovic, Maguire, Huth, Fuchs, Simpson, Chilwell, Benalouane, Dragovic, James, Albrighton, Amartey, Gray, Silva, Ndidi, Iborra, Choudhury, Mahrez, Vardy, Iheanacho, Diabate.

Manchester City are still without a left-back as Benjamin Mendy has been nursing an injury for quite a while now.

"I wish he can come back as soon as possible and play, he's an extraordinary player and everyone enjoys watching the better players".
