Aguero on the verge of breaking City’s home record today at the Etihad.


Sergio Aguero can become Manchester City’s new record goalscorer today if he scores in front of his home crowd.

Aguero needs three more goals to pass Eric Brook’s record of 177 strikes for City, and the Argentina international, who netted a hat-trick against Watford last weekend, could achieve the feat by plundering another treble at home to struggling Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Addressing the media before he match, Guardiola acknowledged the Etihad Stadium would be a fitting venue for the long-standing milestone to be passed.

“The record is going to be broken, where, I don’t know,” he said. “Maybe at home would be better.

“I’m not thinking about tomorrow [Saturday] that he is going to score three goals, just that we score one, we win the game, the team plays good and we will have more chances.

“The focus is on playing good and if we play good, we will create chances to score goals. You have to provoke scoring more goals in the way that we play.
