Aguero at the double to deny Burnley

Aguero brace

Sergio Aguero struck twice as Manchester City came from behind to beat Burnley 2-1 at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday.

Almost a goal a game

The Argentine scored the winner in the 60th minute when he fired home at the far post for his 33rd goal in his last 34 games, having equalised in the 37th minute when he beat Burnley's stand-in keeper Paul Robinson from close range.


Table topping

Dean Marney had opened the scoring for Burnley in the 14th minute with a stunning 20-metre volley from Nicolas Otamendi's headed clearance. The result means City move top of the table on 30 points, two ahead of Chelsea, who have a tricky home game against London rivals spurs on Saturday. Burnley remain rooted in mid-table on 14 points.
