LIVE – Manchester City lead, but Aguero denied hat trick


What a first half at the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City lead 2-1, but Spurs are in with a shout after Sergio Aguero failed to seal a hat trick by missing a PK.

Aguero wriggled free from Younes Kaboul and curled in a beauty to put City 1-0 up in the 13th minute, as Erik Lamela was guilty of giving the ball away on the edge of the box and Lampard played in Aguero to score his sixth goal of the season. Their lead didn’t last long as Mason caught Fernando in possession and Soldado played in Eriksen to rifle in the equalizer despite Hart getting a foot on it. 1-1.


Less than five minutes later City were back ahead as Lamela was penalized by referee Jonathan Moss for a collision with Lampard in the box and Aguero slotted home the penalty kick. That was the Argentine’s 35th goal in his last 40 PL games, as City lead 2-1. Before half time Aguero should have had a hat trick after Kaboul brought down David Silva for another penalty kick but Aguero’s second spot kick of the day was saved by Huge Lloris.
