match against Marseille, Aguero came in from the bench and scored the third goal of his team in their 3-0 victory against the French side. Aguero’s fitness problems have been a huge challenge for Guardiola but

believes that the team can regain their best form if they settle to their new system. Asked about the team’s lack of firepower, Goater responded:

“I think it was a number of things, including a reliance on Kevin De Bruyne for creativity.

“Pep was also trying to figure out the midfield and tinkered with his system, putting another defensive midfielder in alongside Rodri.

“Also I was really hoping that Gabriel Jesus would take the opportunity of knowing he had a run of games, but he didn't quite do that and I think he sacrificed himself for the team by doing a lot of work out wide when to score goals you need to be in the middle.”
