Agüero's Hatter Helps City Beat Arsenal, Keep Pressure on the 'Pool
With Liverpool visiting mid-table West Ham United tomorrow, the Citizens have thrown down the gauntlet for them to match the point haul or fall back.
Of the 'Ship's Big Six, only Manchester United comes close to Arsenal in terms of porous defenses. The Gunners have allowed 36 goals in 25 games, one more than the Red Devils.
Contrast that with City's now 66 markers to date, and it was on the cards that it wouldn't take long to see them on the board.
Ten minutes later, Arsenal responded through Laurent Koscielny.
Arsenal grew into the game, and we could've seen a different first half, but ...
After the break, City was even more confident and ultimately put the game away.
It happened in the 66th, when none other than Agüero completed his hat trick. Sterling crossed from the left and found the Argentine, who knocked it home yet again from close distance:
Ball's in your court, Liverpool.
And Agüero can relax for a minute after a job well done.
