GALLERY: AGUERO STRIKES AS CITY EDGE BURNLEY


Burnley match gallery 6 - Bernardo cele


Sergio Aguero’s 20th league goal of the season handed Manchester City a vital three points against Burnley.


Pep Guardiola's side returned to the top of the table after the Argentine’s second half strike, which saw him become only the second man to reach the 20-goal mark in six Premier League seasons.


After a quiet first half, City came racing out the blocks in the second period and peppered Tom Heaton’s goal before Aguero broke the deadlock from close range to give City a 12th consecutive league win.
