Match Highlights

Classic highlights: City 6-1 Huddersfield 2018

On this day in 2018 Sergio Aguero - as so often - led from the front, scoring a superb hat-trick in a thumping 6-1 win over Huddersfield Town.

Aguero opened the scoring in the first half - thanks to a remarkable 70-yard assist from Ederson - before adding two goals after the break to complete his 13th career hat-trick and ninth in the Premier League.

The reigning champions were in irresistible form at the Etihad in our opening home game of what would prove a remarkable 2018/19 campaign.

The Terriers did manage to hold City at bay for 25 minutes but were undone when goalkeeper Ederson picked out Aguero with a stunning pinpoint pass and the striker drew out Ben Hamer before lifting the ball into the net.

Gabriel Jesus added a second seven minutes later with a crisp low strike before Aguero pounced on a Hamer error to stab in his second.

Jon Gorenc Stankovic gave the visitors the slightest glimmer of hope before half-time when he poked in from Steve Mounie's flick-on, but any optimism was snuffed out early in the second half by a brilliant free-kick from David Silva.

Aguero wrapped up his hat-trick with a smart flick from Benjamin Mendy's cross - before a Terence Kongolo own goal sealed an emphatic win for an impressive City.
