Chelsea got rid of Costa in the summer and were in desperate need to replace the Spanish striker but later opted to sign fellow compatriot Alvaro Morata. Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero was disillusioned at the beginning of the season especially following the arrival of Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus and it looked like Aguero was heading out of the Etihad.
Man City was willing to listen to offers for the Argentine striker and Chelsea was touted his likeliest destination. Guardiola sees Gabriel Jesus as his first choice and Aguero with his calibre couldn’t settle for less. Chelsea were in pole position to sign the Argentine striker but instead paid more for Morata whose experience and abilities could not compare with that of the Argentine.
Aguero scored four goals in City’s 5-1 mauling of Leicester, taking his tally to 21 Premier League goals alongside Salah (21) and Kane (23) despite fewer appearance. Aguero is experienced and has established himself in the ever competitive Premier League. Kun could have perfectly replaced Costa whose contribution for Chelsea was as important in the past few seasons
Just watching this goal from Aguero is heaven in the earth. Lethal Strike.
Im sorry who ever doubt him.
He proving the wrong. pic.twitter.com/XkA5cTH3fl

In other Premier League results, Harry Kane scored the lone goal as Tottenham got a deserved win over Arsenal at Wembley. Wenger handed Aubamayang his full debut as he played alongside Ozil and Mhkitaryan, but the starting line up was not force enough to stop Tottenham from getting all the points.

Stoke City 1 – 1 Brighton & Hove Albion
Swansea City 1 – 0 Burnley
