With the nil in front of West Ham to persist in the scoreboard, Pep Guardiola sent Bernardo Silva in the 57th minute pass. After 30 seconds, the Portuguese received the ball to the right, knocked down the area and was thrown by Felipe Anderson.
The referee marked penálti, Aguero turned – 96th goal in 119 Etihad games for the Premier League – and City breathed deeply.
But Bernardo did not stop there. At age 64, he signed a great game in the area, after seeing the table with Aguero, so that the shot of Sterling for Fabianski and David Silva saves reloading the line. He also had a dangerous header and passes for Danilo and Sterling.
Chosen the best on the channel by the city's fans, Bernardo shared his satisfaction with social networks: "Three more points. Very good. There's more on Saturday!"
Guardiola praised the "creativity" of Portuguese. West Ham coach Manuel Pellegrini thought it was more creativity: "I felt the touch and dropped. It was not penitential!"
