Sergio Aguero scored two vital goals for Manchester City as they defeated their bogey Side Stoke at the Brittannia Stadium for the first time in 5 seasons. Aguero, however, will not be remembered for his two goals on the night but for a cheeky attemot to score a goal with his glove. Aguero tried to create his own version “glove of GOD” of Maradona’s infamous goal against England in the 1986 World Cup.

Unlike Maradona, Aguero could not play the bluff game successfully as Referee Lee Mason spotted the act by the Argentine Superstar and disallowed the goal and since that time on Aguero was facing constant Booes and Jeers by the Stoke fans. Aguero with his left hand fingers and tried to guid the ball in to the net using his Glove and the ref Lee Mason was inclined to allow the goal as well, which would have put City ahead 2-1 at the half time.

Man City players were loud in appeals and so were Stoke players who clearly saw the incident from a close range, especially defender Mark Muniesa. Amid all of the appeals, Aguero quietly moved away from the scene and refrained from making any kind of gesture of appeal. Due to protests, ref consulted with his linesman and correctly disallowed the goal. The decision was widely applauded by the Stoke fans and became the reason of hatred against Aguero.

Aguero was in for the stick mainly because Maradona’s act “hand of GOD” happened against England in the 1986 World Cup and it brought all the wrong memories in Stoke fans’ minds and they expressed it with loud Booes and Jeers. Aguero’s act however will not be remembered for as long as Maradona’s, because the goal was disallowed, he was booked and above all of that he scored two brilliant goals on the night.

Aguero scored his first goals for City since December 3 and has kept City’s push for the title on the track. City currently trail Chelsea in the rcae for Premier League title by 7 points.
