The Argentine opened the scoring in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace with an emphatic half-volley as he made his first appearance in eight games.
City came up against a stubborn Palace defence in the first half, but Aguero’s timely intervention shortly after the break proved the turning point as Ferran Torres added a second 83 seconds later to put Pep Guardiola’s side in the driving seat.
It was only the Club’s record goalscorer’s fourth goal in a campaign severely disrupted by injury and he was thrilled to be back doing what he does best.
“I am so happy because I am back playing again,” he told CityTV afterwards.
“And, more importantly, because I scored a goal. We are happy.
“Mendy tried to find me and inside the box I only have to do one or two touches. It’s my job.”
