Souness spots what Aguero did after David Silva goal in Manchester derby
Manchester City took the lead in their derby with fierce rivals United through David Silva.
The Spaniard took his time to find a way past David Silva after excellent work from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva.
Sterling’s cross found the Portuguese at the back post and his pull back eventually found its way to namesake David, who found the net.
Replays showed Sergio Aguero was close to getting on the end of the cross though only to be seemingly pulled back by Chris Smalling in the area.
Interestingly, referee Anthony Taylor put his whistle to his mouth and looked set to give a penalty before waving play on for Silva to find the net.
City’s players ran off to the corner in celebration but Aguero was straight over to Taylor to ask why a penalty wasn’t given.
And had it been, Smalling would have likely found himself in big trouble.
Speaking on Sky Sports at half-time, pundit Graeme Souness was full of praise for Taylor after his appointment had been questioned this week.
"It is outstanding from City. Luke Shaw is caught square but Silva keeps it alive," he said.
"There is actually a real shout for a penalty on Aguero. Smalling has got his hands on him. He is preventing him from moving forward.
"It is a penalty. If you watch what happens afterwards, Aguero doesn’t go over to his mates to celebrate, he goes to the referee.
"I think the referee is saying he has allowed play on."
Aguero had clearly been frustrated that he could not add to his tally but the Argentine wasn’t to be denied.
Within three minutes of the second half he was on target after playing a one-two with Riyad Mahrez.
He lashed a fine drive beyond David De Gea to double City’s lead.
