Sergio Aguero is no stranger to scoring big goals, so it came as no surprised when he netted the winner in one of the defining games of the Premier League season. Aguero scored a memorable goal in Manchester City’s win over Manchester United on Monday. His 78th-minute strike stood as the difference between the local rivals, as City prevailed 2-1. The Argentine striker started the game on the bench, and he had been on the field for less than 10 minutes when he took charge of the proceedings. He received a pass on the right side of the United defense and ran laterally toward the left. He displayed an unnatural mix of speed, composure and precision as he powered and feinted his way past a trio of United defenders — all while keeping control the ball. As Aguero approached the United goal, he maintained his balance and generated enough power on his shot to beat goalkeeper David de Gea.  The win will boost City’s morale as the season nears its conclusion. United has a 12-point lead with seven games to play, and it is still on track to win the league title by a comfortable margin. But that matters little at the moment, since a stocky goal-scoring extraordinaire from Argentina has given City fans in Manchester, England some local bragging rights. See Aguero’s run and goal in the animation below. Have a question for Marcus Kwesi O’Mard? Send it to him via Twitter at @NESNsoccer, NESN Soccer’s Facebook page or send it here.
