Stoke City 1-4 Manchester City: Aguero brace sees the holders thrash the Potters

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero scored twice as the Sky Blues eventually thrashed Stoke City in a second-half onslaught at the previously tricky Britannia Stadium, reports BBC Sport.

Aguero opened the scoring after half an hour, collecting the ball from deep and driving forward, before finishing low past Asmir Begovic in the Stoke goal.

Minutes later, however, Stoke levelled the game. Striker Peter Crouch headed home from a fantastic Marco Arnautovic cross to equalise emphatically before the break.

In the second-half, James Milner continued his impressive goalscoring form with another effort to put the Sky Blues in the lead minutes before the hour mark.

Aguero grabbed his second of the game and Manchester City’s third with a penalty midway in the second-half, before Samir Nasri wrapped up proceedings minutes later.

The result ensured they didn’t lose ground on league leaders Chelsea, and they’ll be confident of hitting form now they’ve ended their winless run away to Stoke.
