If the Manchester City striker scores against Arsenal again on Thursday he will set a personal record.
Manchester City’s players will travel to Emirates Stadium on Thursday on a high, having beaten Arsenal in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. And one player on Pep Guardiolaa��s side will be particularly relishing the return to north London as he seeks to achieve a feat he has never managed before. Sergio Aguero has scored in each of his last five appearances against Arsenal in all competitions. The run started towards the end of 2015/16 with a goal in the 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium. Since then, he netted against the Gunners in the FA Cup and Premier League last season before converting a penalty in the league and opening the scoring at Wembley Stadium on Sunday. Never before has the Argentinian scored in six matches in a row against one team. But he could set the record against an Arsenal defence which have not kept a clean sheet in their last nine Premier League matches. They last went 10 without a shutout in the league in February 2002, in a run of 11 matches.
