Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, is a key figure for City as they try and attempt to dethrone Liverpool from the top of the Premier League as the Argentine plays his best football under manager, Pep Guardiola. Having spent 8 years with Manchester City, Aguero is now City's top goal scorer and has 4 Premier League titles, 4 league cups and one FA Cup to his credit while turning Manchester blue after ending the decades-old dominance of Manchester United.

'One of the best decisions of my life'

Sergio played his 350th game for Manchester City and marked the occasion by scoring a brace against Southampton in the league cup fourth-round win on October 29, adding to a total of 12 goals this season and a total of 243 club goals. It is the 31-year-old-striker and his knack of consistently scoring goals that boost Manchester City's chances of winning a 3rd consecutive Premier League title. 

In an interview, Sergio said that it was hard to picture himself at City for such a long time when he initially signed for the club 8 years ago and as time went by and they won titles, it became clear to him that he wanted to stay at the Etihad and enjoy football during his time at the club.
