Sergio Aguero scoring for Manchester City.

However, the Frenchman immediately took to Twitter after City's 6-1 win over Huddersfield Town on Sunday to salute his side's performance.

Huddersfield came away from the Etihad with a 0-0 draw last season but couldn't deal with City this time.

Aguero then converted his hat-trick with a deft flicked finish from the magnificent Benjamin Mendy's cross on 75 minutes.

Aguero showed his sublime skills with the ball and even tracked back on certain occasions in order to keep the defenders occupied whilst allowing more space for Jesus.

Once again, City are title favourites and have begun the season in imperious fashion.

Such is City's strength in depth, Guardiola was able to leave Kyle Walker, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling on the bench.

Top of the highlight reel in the latest exhibition by City was a 70-meter pass from goalkeeper Ederson Moraes from his own penalty area that found Aguero running behind Huddersfield's defensive line.

Gabriel Jesus doubled the hosts advantage on 31 minutes, with the Brazilian firing home from the edge of the box.

The blitz continues as the champions scored a third inside 10 minutes as Hamer spilled Mendy's cross allowing Aguero the simplest of tasks to poke the ball home from a couple of yards out.

City suffered a blow this week with playmaker Kevin De Bruyne suffering a knee injury in training that will rule him out for around three months.

But, incredibly, Huddersfield scored from their first attack of the game, three minutes before the interval.

Jon Gorenc Stankovic got one back for the Terriers right before the half.

The former Spain worldwide, who this week announced his retirement from his national team, curled a magnificent 25-yard left-foot free-kick into the top right-hand corner of the Huddersfield goal.

Pereyra has now hit four goals in his last five Premier League games at Vicarage Road and now faces the challenge of transferring that form into away matches - and a game against a exhausted Burnley side who played 120 minutes in midweek is the ideal opportunity for him to shine. The hat trick was the 13th of his career.
