It was an emotional week for the announcement that the Manchester City and Sergio Aguero they did by communicating the end of a 10-year relationship. But Pep Guardiola gave a message: there is still a long way to go for the farewell. Yes, the Citizens dispute four competitions and want to win everything. For this reason, the DT sent the Argentine to the field in what was another victory, a 2-0 against Leicester as a visitor that brings them closer to the Premier: with two more games they took 17 points ahead of United.
After confirmation that he will not continue after June, Pep started Kun and played 60 ‘(REUTERS).
Kun was the starter. He was immediately the protagonist but with a disallowed goal. Because Fernandinho finished from outside the area and he was ahead, blocking the vision of Kasper Schmeichel. The VAR warned and canceled that early 1-0.
Against a strong rival Pep trusted him with Mahrez on the right and Gabriel Jesus on the left. With the Foxes so far behind it was difficult for anyone to get the spaces. Sergio worked for that and had two chances of his own: a left-handed volley that went way up in the PT and a right, blocked by a defender in the ST. Then what he had complained about weeks ago happened a little: they did not look for him too much. Gabriel Jesus did not get to throw a center and in another he looked for the individual. The same De Bruyne with a shot from outside.
The goal disallowed against City: when Fernandinho finished off Kun, it bothered Schmeichel’s vision
The 0-0 persisted and the possession was all (it became 96% in a moment) of the celestial ones, but they did not generate according to that. Until in the second half they combined better and the action of Benjamin Mendy, the left-handed winger / winger who defined flawlessly on the right when he had Kun at one meter. It was the 1-0 that opened everything. Right away, Pep changed: outside Agüero and inside Sterling. Right after that, the game that would have been more favorable for the Argentine began: with spaces against a needy Leicester. And so it was, because Sterling assisted Gabriel Jesus, who already made it 2-0 at 9 and settled everything. What remained for the City to improve were those losses in their own field that led to against the rival. They ended up in nothing, but on other occasions it has cost them dearly. A detail to take into account and much more that now the Champions League is coming.
Next Tuesday he will receive Borussia Dortmund for the quarterfinals of the Orejona, looking for that title that is missing from the Pep era. The Premier is already practically on track with such an advantage. In a season in which the celestial ones learned to play without their historical scorer, it is still necessary to fire him. Kun and City go for everything.
