Manchester City crushed Huddersfield 6-1 in their second EPL fixture of the 2018/19 season. Sergio Aguero got three of Manchester City’s six goals, as Gabriel Jesus and David Silva also scored and Terence Kongolo netted an own goal.
Sergio Aguero registered his 13th hat-trick for Manchester City as the reigning Premier League champions showed they were not missing Kevin De Bruyne in a 6-1 thrashing of Huddersfield Town.
Aguero got City’s first, third and fifth goals, while Gabriel Jesus and David Silva, on his 250th Premier League appearance, also beat Huddersfield goalkeeper Ben Hamer.
Terence Kongolo’s own goal capped a convincing City victory which was only slightly spoiled by Jon Stankovic’s effort for the visitors just before half-time.
It was a reminder from City and Aguero that they can cope without Belgian playmaker De Bruyne, who suffered a knee injury earlier this week that could rule him out for up to three months.
The last time City beat Huddersfield at home in the league, in 1987, they scored 10 and after 35 minutes on Sunday the reigning champions were 3-0 up.
The only negative from Pep Guardiola’s perspective was that Huddersfield pulled one back prior to the break as Stankovic capitalised when Steve Mounie flicked on a long throw.
