2013/14 Player Ratings: Sergio Aguero

Shaun Botterill

Sergio Aguero (20 league starts, 3 sub apps) 8/10

Premier League and Carling Cup medals, 17 league goals, widespread acclaim and yet there is still a feeling of ‘what if’ about the 2013/14 season for El Kun.

At times Sergio was displaying the best form he has yet in a City shirt and was in such a consistent and prolific groove until injuries fragmented his season essentially from January onwards. Had he stayed fit through the campaign then there is no doubt that he would have run Luis Suarez close for the golden boot and would most likely have put City in a more secure position at the top of the table earlier in the season.

That is all conjecture of course, but the qualities that we all associate now with Aguero were displayed whenever he took to the field. The sudden bursts of acceleration, changes of direction and of course lethal finishing were a joy to behold as the goals rained in throughout the Autumn and Winter months in particular.

As the title race built to a climax, the 20 minute spell against Everton in that oh so nervy fixture at Goodison Park surmises Sergio’s season. Fantastic movement, a menace whenever in possession and a clinical strike before withdrawing with a troubling muscular injury.

Still only 25, if Sergio can steer clear of injuries next season then there is no doubt that he will thoroughly confirm his status as one of the world’s greatest strikers. Until then, the pleasure of watching him and a certain Lionel Messi terrorise defences in the white and blue of Argentina this summer.
