Aguero opened the scoring for City in their 5-0 win over Cardiff, with Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan also getting in on the fun before half-time and Riyad Mahrez bagging two goals after the break.
The Argentina international scored on his 300th appearance for the club in all competitions and just one day after signing a contract extension with the Sky Blues:

It was a routine win for the defending champions, who kept an in-form Liverpool squad within striking distance with the result.
The Reds also cruised to three points on Saturday, as Mohamed Salah bagged his first Liverpool goal since August. The Egyptian converted just before half-time, after Wesley Hoedt had already opened the scoring with an own-goal and Joel Matip doubled the advantage.
Liverpool are still perfect after six Premier League fixtures and also beat Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.
In the early outing, in-form Mitrovic continued his great run by scoring in the 1-1 draw against Watford. Sky Sport Statto shared some key stats behind his outing:
