Any time is a good time to get one of the finest strikers in world football back from a spell on the sidelines, but especially when you are Manchester City and fighting for four trophies.
Recent stats show that Sergio Aguero is the most prolific striker in the major European leagues this season, where the Argentine has effectively registered a goal every 80 minutes.
Therefore, starting with the Capital One Cup final against Sunderland, where Aguero is expected to be in contention once again after sitting out the whole of February, his return is likely to be pivotal to any trophy accruement.
City are already deemed the bubbling hot favourites to win the League Cup, priced at 1/7, with Gus Poyet’s side hoping to emulate Wigan’s FA Cup heroics of last season as the 9/2 outsiders.
However, if City’s price to lift a first piece of silverware of the season doesn’t appeal, why not consider the wincast which includes a goal from our aforementioned friend.
Odds of 5/6 can be obtained about Aguero scoring as part of a Wembley win for the Citizens and this seems like a very reasonable price given his scoring stats this season.
Before his layoff, Aguero found the net in every one of his last eight City appearances, which included a hat-trick in the FA Cup.
And for those concerned that he may not hit the ground running, it’s also worth pointing out that there was another three week layoff during that run, where he scored against Blackburn on his return to the starting line-up.
