Manchester City v Huddersfield: David Silva's baby steals show as City mascot

Manchester City midfielder David Silva made his 250th Premier League appearance for the Citizens when he started their home game against Huddersfield Town, but his on-field exploits are likely to be overshadowed by the presence of his son Mateo.

Alan Shearer remains - as ever - top of the list, with 260 goals.

United's captain was quick to admit that United have problems.

Sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth place are taken up by Robbie Fowler (163), Jermain Defoe (162) Michael Owen (150) and Les Ferdinand (149). City are the favorites to win the league again, but will be focused on the Champions League title as well.

The opening goal of the game arrived from a familiar source as Aguero wriggled free after a wonderful ball over the top from City's goalkeeper Ederson.

While the rest of the Premier League prepares for their second match, Burnley are well into their stride as Europa League qualifiers mean that Sean Dyche's side have already played five matches this season - and they are in superb form. This monstrous City winning machine are improving after hitting 100 points last season.

"Sergio is in an incredible condition with the ball and without the ball".

Aguero scored after 25 and 35 minutes, either side of Gabriel Jesus' effort before Jon Gorenc Stankovic reduced the deficit to 3-1 at the break.

Last year's home fixture against Huddersfield was a tough slog, with Guardiola's men narrowly edging out David Wagner's compact Terriers 2-1.

The Special One has said City might be a rich club that signs the best players but they "cannot buy class". During those anxious first few months, David Silva made many trips back to Spain to see how his son was coping - a complicated situation as Manchester City had entered the crucial part of the season. But, I doubt they will be as impressive as City were today.

Every time I have watched Aguero, he has been greedy for goals.

Watford had been winless in their past 12 away games and had last netted away from Vicarage Road in January.

Three minutes later Burnley got back on level terms when James Tarkowski headed home from corner.

"Will Hughes scored an outstanding goal, I am happy for all of them".

"We gave the game to the opposition", he said.
