Aguero hat trick leads Man City to 3-1 victory over Arsenal
It was an unconventional treble for the striker, using his head, right foot — and left arm.
Having scored after 24 seconds in Tuesday’s 2-1 loss at Newcastle, Aguero had to wait a little bit longer — 48 seconds — to put City in front against Arsenal. The Argentine dived to head Aymeric Laporte’s cross past goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
The third goal came in untidy fashion as the ball bounced off his arm as he slid in to bundle it over the line after Leno pushed on Sterling’s cross.
Arsenal tumbled to sixth place after Manchester United beat Leicester 1-0 in Sunday’s other game.
While City moved ahead of Tottenham into second place, leader Liverpool is not in action until Monday against West Ham.
