After beating Arsenal in the opening weekend, Manchester City’s kept their winning form going and picked up their second victory on the trot – this time beating Huddersfield Town.
And this was no ordinary win as the Cityzens won the match 6-1 which saw a hattrick from Sergio Aguero and a couple of other goals from the likes of David Silva and Gabriel Jesus.
As City show no signs of slowing down we decided to take a look at ten facts from the match vs Huddersfield which clearly outline that Pep Guardiola’s men are the favourites to defend their Premier League title.
Sergio Aguero scored the first hattrick of the 2018-19 season and with that, the striker has scored three of the five hattricks that were recorded this calendar year.
