Sergio Agüero shrugged off an injury scare after leading Manchester City to a 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

The on-fire front man claimed all four goals as well as missing a penalty for the champions, but appeared in some discomfort after being caught when sliding for a low cross at the far post just before the hour.

“I am fine – I am ready to play the next game,” Aguero told BT Sport. “This club is one of the best in the world and I am lucky to play here.”

Agüero, who now has nine goals in six league games against the north London outfit, laughed off the praise heaped on him by Mauricio Pochettino in midweek.

The Spurs boss had told the media: “When he plays it is like classical music in my head. It is unbelievable.”

And the striker smiled when told of the particular comparison drawn by his fellow Argentinian.

Agüero said: “I don’t know I was called Mozart!”
