Aguero & Sterling Shine To Strengthen City's Top Four Hopes

English Premier League 

Result: Manchester City 3-1 Hull City 

Date: 08 April 2017

Venue: Etihad

Manchester City boosted their top four hopes as Sergio Aguero was among the goals as they cruised to a 3-1 win over Hull City at the Etihad.

City nearly broke the deadlock in the fifth minute, when Silva picked out Sergio Aguero, who saw his effort denied by Jakupovic.

Guardiola's charges enjoyed most of the possession in the first half, but were restricted to efforts from distance, none of which troubled Jakupovic.

The home side eventually broke the deadlock in the 31st minute as El-Mohamady diverted Jesus Navas' cross into his own net.

Hull pushed for a way back into the encounter with Grosiki going close with a long rang effort just before the halftime break.

City doubled their lead three minutes into the second half, as Aguero slammed home from six-yards out after some good work by Raheem Sterling.

The lead was extended in the 65th minute as Sterling picked up another assist by teeing up Fabian Delph, who rifled the ball into the far corner from the edge of the box, 3-0.

Guardiola opted for a change after 72 minutes as Nigerian forward, Kelechi Iheanacho replaced Silva.

City pushed for more goals in the closing stages, however they struggled to carve out a clear-cut chance.

Hull managed to pull a goal back in the 85th minute, as Andrea Ranocchia volleyed home from close range, although Claudio Bravo should have done better with his attempted save.
