City scored twice in the opening 15 minutes through Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus before Ederson saved a Gylfi Sigurðsson penalty. From there, Phil Foden added the third before Agüero delivered one last bit of magic to score the most goals for one club in the history of the Premier League.
It was an incredible final day and the perfect sendoff for City’s all-time leading goalscorer. He has been a fantastic servant to the club that has won countless trophies during his time in Manchester, and it was truly the most fitting way for the Argentine to leave: with one more brace.
It was his last appearance at the Etihad, but if he doesn’t find his way onto the pitch in Porto for the Champions League final, it wraps up a truly excellent career for one of City’s true legends. Along with David Silva and Vincent Kompany, Agüero was one of the key figures that built this club to be England’s best over the course of the last decade following the takeover.
From his legendary winner against QPR until today, he has been an eternal figure at City, and although he will remain in Europe with Barcelona, it was an honor to see one of English football’s best-ever goalscorers do it one more time at the Etihad. It was almost a fairytale ending to an incredible domestic campaign, but the biggest game in club history still looms across the horizon.
