More perfection against his favourite opposition (January 2018)

And so we come bang up to date and Sergio’s latest treble.

Newcastle must be sick of the sight of the Argentine who finished the game with 14 goals from his 12 matches against them.

That’s 11 and counting – and took him 49 minutes to complete as City won 3-1.
