Guardiola Pleased With Man City Record, Praises Aguero

Guardiola Pleased With Man City Record, Praises Aguero

Aguero's first-half penalty versus Sean Dyche's side, which came on his first appearance since breaking a rib in a vehicle accident three weeks ago, moved him on to 177 goals in all competitions for City - level with long-time record holder Eric Brook.

"How the referee has seen it", Burnley manager Sean Dyche said after the game.

Controversy erupted after Pope reacted quickly to deny Kevin De Bruyne the chance to shoot.

Silva went down under a challenge from Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope to win the penalty and Dyche was unimpressed with what he judged to be a theatrical tumble from the Portugal global. There was no doubt that the Portuguese midfielder had made plenty of the challenge; it was a question of whether Pope's contact was enough to be considered a foul.

Maine Unemployment Still Low, Down Slightly in September
Annual gains since 2016 were up across the board, including 7,300 jobs added in trade, transportation and utilities. The largest decrease was in professional & business services, which fell 2,700 from a record high in August.

Burnley put up a stubborn effort and made it hard for City to break them down. If that's a penalty then I want one on Chris Wood last week. Sadly for Wood, he was injured in the move, and had to come off minutes later.

Gabriel Jesus has scored 13 goals in his 15 starts in the Premier League - only Mick Quinn (14) and Andrew Cole (15) netted more in their first 15 starts in PL history.

Aguero was playing for the first time since breaking a rib in a taxi crash in Amsterdam on September 28, and grew in confidence as the match went on. The German raced into the area and lashed a low shot past Pope.

Pope used his feet again as Aguero angled in from the left and fired towards the far post, with Tarkowski bravely throwing his head in the way to block Bernardo Silva's follow-up.

NAR: Existing-Home Sales Inched Up in September, Despite Impact from Storms
September sales of all property types in Houston totaled 8,150, an increase of 3.4 percent versus the same month previous year . Distressed sales, which include foreclosures and short sales, were at 4 percent - unchanged from last month and a year ago.

Burnley had a penalty shout turned down six minutes into the second half when Fabian Delph hit a clearance against his own arm. "Another good performance. In the second half it was fantastic how good we played".

With Aguero's threat subsiding before his eventual substitution, centre-back Otamendi rose to power in Sane's left-wing corner in the 73rd minute, with Steven Defour's efforts on the goalline leaving something to be desired.

Moments later the points were wrapped up as De Bruyne picked out Sane with a characteristic defense-splitting through-ball.

India vs New Zealand, 1st ODI at Mumbai
We will have to figure out ways to do that but it's certainly a thing we need to discuss for the future as well. We just want to play good cricket, we have been playing good cricket, it continues to be our main goal.
