Health is the only factor keeping Sergio Aguero away from greatness

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol recaps Manchester City's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad.

Two years ago, in an exclusive interview with ESPN FC, Sergio Aguero was asked what was going through his mind in the most important moment of his career so far: those crucial two touches against QPR on the final day of the 2011-12 Premier League season.

His response revealed as much about the general mindset that makes him as it did that title-winning strike.

"You're not really thinking of [what it means]," Aguero said. "In that moment, you're only thinking of scoring. You do it with intensity,...

The best of Sergio Aguero is yet to come at Manchester City

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini hails Sergio Aguero as one of the best in world football after his four-goal haul against Spurs

Sergio Aguero was never not going to be a legend at Manchester City after the events of his debut season. A goal eight minutes into his first-ever appearance for the club helped matters, as did the pile-driver that came in stoppage time of that match -- a clear indication that the man was going to score goals for the Blues.

And then there was, of course, his final touch of the ball of the 2011-12 season, which was pretty much the icing on the cake for his campaign. It was the kick that cemented...

Joe Hart proves that it's not just about Sergio Aguero for Manchester City

Watch all of Saturday's Premier League highlights, headlined by Southampton's 8-0 win over Sunderland and Sergio Aguero's four goals against Tottenham.

It would be untrue to say that Sergio Aguero's goal-scoring feats Saturday against his favourite foe, Tottenham Hotspur, had grabbed all the headlines, but how does one not lead with the story of a striker so good he can afford to miss a penalty and still bag four in a single match? If there was a media outlet not leading with variations on a classical music theme, they were few and far between.

Aguero, the modern-day Manchester variety of El Pibe, those famous Argentine forwards brought up...

Player ratings: Man City's Sergio Aguero wreaks havoc on Tottenham

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol recaps Manchester City's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad.

A day after Tottenham's manager Mauricio Pochettino compared Sergio Aguero to Mozart, the Argentine played beautiful music for the home fans against the leaden feet and confused legs of Younes Kaboul and an ultimately red-carded Federico Fazio.

This was a match that followed the rich history of delicious attacking games between these two sides.

Spurs -- in trying to give as good as they got -- left spaces so tempting for David Silva and the marauding pair of James Milner and Jesus Navas to run into...

Three Points: Manchester City vs. Tottenham

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol recaps Manchester City's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad.

MANCHESTER, England -- A trio of thoughts on Manchester City's 4-1 win vs. Tottenham in the Premier League.

1. The Aguero show

Sergio Aguero takes a while to get up to 100 percent fitness but, when there, he's often unstoppable. His four-goal haul was hugely impressive, yet he might feel he could have had a Premier League record-equalling five, having missed one of his three penalties.

His first goal was typical Aguero: a goal out of absolutely nothing, from a difficult angle in the inside-left position....

Manchester City prepare for tricky visit of Pochettino's Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino spoke ahead of his game against champions Manchester City, a team they have struggled against in the past.

They often say that an early goal can settle the nerves in a tough match. In previous seasons, when Tottenham travelled north to the Etihad Stadium, the Blues were usually in for a tricky tie. In fact, seven of Spurs' last eight games when playing away to Manchester City were decided by one goal -- the exception in that list marked Manuel Pellegrini's arrival on the scene and in spectacular fashion.

Last season, the visitors in this fixture were on terms for a mere 12 seconds of the game. After...
