Sergio Agüero scored a scruffy but priceless winning goal as Manchester City returned to the Premier League summit
Pep Guardiola talks, and takes aim at the Turf Moor grounds staff. “We controlled Barnes and Wood very well,” he says. “In the first half the pitch was so, so dry and it was difficult to move the ball but in the second half we increased our desire to win. We had clear chances in the second half, we could have won by more distance. I am so, so happy with this victory and now we have a long week to prepare for Leicester. Hopefully we can arrive in Brighton with the chance to be champions.” Of Sergio Agüero, who struck his 20th goal of the season, the Spaniard adds: “He is an exceptional player.”
Sergio Agüero speaks. “Today I was happy about the technology,” he says, a couple of weeks after VAR denied them passage to the Champions League semi-finals. “I am very happy with the goal because in the first half we had a lot of chances and now we have a week to prepare for the next games.” They play Leicester next Monday and then Brighton on the final day of the season.
