Sergio Aguero's not-so-pleasant record vs. Arsenal
- City's prolific goal-scorer will be hoping to get off to another impressive start vs. Arsenal at Etihad Stadium this afternoon
- Here's a brief analysis by Sports Mole team on how the Argentine has fared against Arsenal in the past.
"All 14 of Aguero's previous meetings with Arsenal have come during his time with Manchester City, including 11 in the Premier League which have yielded mixed results of four wins, four draws and three defeats.
"The Argentine came up against the Gunners on three occasions last season and directly contributed to a goal in each of those, registering one assist and scoring twice himself - including once in the EFL Cup final.
"Indeed, Aguero has now scored in five of his last six meetings with Arsenal across all competitions, stretching back to the 2015-16 campaign.
"Three of his eight goals against the London outfit have come at the Emirates Stadium too, with three more at home and two on the hallowed turf of Wembley.
"City have never lost inside normal time when Aguero has scored against Arsenal, although they were beaten in extra time of the 2016-17 FA Cup semi-finals after the striker had got on the scoresheet."
Will our defenders be able to cope with the extra pressure imparted by Aguero?
