Manuel Pellegrini has claimed that it will be hard for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero not to win the Premier League’s golden boot for a second straight season given the form that he is in.
Aguero hit a hat-trick on Saturday evening to fire City past Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, drawing level with Jamie Vardy in second and one behind Harry Kane at the top of the scoring charts.
However, the England duo both scored in games on Sunday and Monday, so Aguero is one behind Vardy and three behind
Kane, although the Argentine does have a game more to play than both.
Pellegrini said: “He has scored an important amount of goals so he is fighting to be the top scorer this year also.
“The way that he is playing, especially the last game, I am sure that it will be difficult for the other strikers to
keep up with his performances.”
