David Silva threaded a pass to the Argentine striker, who sped clear of the back line he was one on one with Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begović who saved smartly.

Aguero however got his gaol in the 31st minute.

Silva’s pass into Aguero started the move,  with the striker laying the ball back to Yaya Toure and getting it in return almost immediately.
