Sergio Aguero 10/3 to score first against Tottenham
Sky Sports’ Super Sunday really lives up to its billing this weekend, as another day of Premier League drama ends with a headline battle between title contenders Manchester City and Tottenham.
So, Coral bring customers a superb bet of the day to match the exciting action, with Sergio Aguero the star price at 10/3 to fire the Citizens ahead first.
There’s much to recommend the Man City marksman at such generous odds, so read on to find out why the Argentine hitman is best to back for first blood…
The scourge of Spurs?
If anyone can stop Tottenham in their tracks it is Aguero, as the lethal La Albiceleste attacker has, most importantly, found the opening goal in a fantastic three of his previous four fixtures against the capital club.
Yet, the South American sharpshooter’s superb stats versus Spurs do not stop there, as Aguero has run riot against this opposition with eight in his last five outings against them. A whopping 10 career goals in just eight games when previously paired with the north Londoners to boot suggests they will struggle to find a solution to the striker’s nose for net.
Crucially, Aguero excels at the Etihad, where Tottenham will be hosted this time out, and boasts another rampant record of seven strikes in the four home games he has played against them.
This may be skewed by the Argentina attacker’s four thrilling goals in this fixture last season, when the striker ran riot, but the fact remains that Aguero has been on target in all but one match on Manchester turf against Tottenham.
Aguero gunning for Premier League Golden Boot
As Man City’s main man, Aguero of course bears the goal burden, and has been enjoying a typically prolific purple patch of late in particular, with the hitman finding the net in six of his last five games in all competitions.
In this clash, Aguero will also be up against one of his main contenders for the Premier League Golden Boot in Harry Kane, so should find extra motivation for an Etihad edge.
As Premier League top scorer for 2015, Aguero has made strong claims to retain that title with 14 notched in 18 league adventures this term, which makes that 10/3 price for the first strike all the more enticing.
