The Argentina international scored two penalties either side of a missed spot-kick, as well as two brilliant strikes from open play to seal three points.
And here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order as City move up to second in the Premier League.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) can explain David Silva’s poor performance: “Never seen Silva lose so many balls, the fact I put him in my best foreign 11 seems to have gone to his head!!!!”
Former Citizens goalkeeper David James (@jamosfoundation) agreed with Federico Fazio’s red card: “What a match, Man City v Spurs. Def sending off, Aguero was a foot away from the ball after being dragged back”
Golfer Lee Westwood (@WestwoodLee) could have a future as a football scout: “Aguero is quite a good footballer.”
Former Spurs chairman Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) would love Arsene Wenger to take over at White Hart Lane: ” RT ‘@piersmorgan: Tottenham Hotspur, you’re fired. cc @Lord_Sugar’……would you like to swap Soldado for Wenger”
Ex-Manchester United striker Michael Owen (@themichaelowen): “Great game at The Etihad. Both teams good going forward. City deserved it although it could have been different without Hart’s pen save.”
Finally, Aguero (@aguerosergiokun) thanks the City fans: “I’m very happy about this victory and for the goals that allowed us to take on a tough rival. Thank you all for the support.”
