Losing Sergio Aguero to injury is believed to be a massive blow for City, but, if you look at the numbers, they suggest something else – City have not actually missed the services of the star striker that much when he hasn’t been available to play.
Since the summer of 2011 when Aguero joined in, the winning % of City with the Argentinean being in the side is 62 which is less if compared to the winning % when he has been out of the side.
However, on the basis of this, one can’t say that Aguero hasn’t been a great contributor during his stay at the Etihad Stadium. He has definitely played his part being very consistent up front and scoring a number of match winning goals.
But, it’s not that when the Sky Blues haven’t had his services, they’ve got exposed. That has certainly not happened. City’s been able to cope.
Of course, they would not have liked Aguero to get injured at this stage and it’s a “blow’, undoubtedly, but, they are a team good enough to still put on the top performances.
City presently stands at the top of the Premier League table with 26 points in 12 games.
