Aguero at the double as Man City keep quadruple bid alive

Aguero at the double as Man City keep quadruple bid alive

Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero scored twice in two second-half minutes to help Premier League leaders to beat Burnley on Saturday and reach the FA Cup fourth round.

Disciplined defending from the Clarets frustrated City who were able to create little in the first half but a lapse in concentration 11 minutes after the break allowed Pep Guardiola's side back into the game. After that, it depends if we win and I deserve to extend my contract.

"Both of Sergio Aguero's goals were incredible, there were clever and quick and I am happy with both of his goals", Guardiola told reporters.

"I am happy for him to have made his statement and it is not easy for him to travel to Spain and England back and forth".

Guardiola is halfway through a three-year contract at the Etihad Stadium - the same length of time he spent at Bayern Munich in his previous job - and reports last month suggested the Catalan would be offered a bumper extension on account of City's dominant form so far this season.

Manchester City fielded a strong team for this cup tie despite making four changes from their midweek league game against Watford which included Claudio Bravo starting between the sticks.

City continue to win regardless of the competition. "I want to win". Giving an update on the contracts of star man De Bruyne and striker Jesus, now sidelined due to a medial knee ligament injury, Guardiola said, "My last news is 'Dinho is close, so close. Gabriel and Kevin, I don't know", Guardiola explained.
