Stats prove Agüero and Jesus can be lethal pairing

We’ll come to that shortly, but the Premier League’s official website has looked in detail at the stats behind Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus’ occasional partnership up front for the Blues.

It’s a bit of a conundrum for boss Pep Guardiola who has two world class strikers at his disposal but highly effective formations that often require just one of the South American pair rather than both.

Earlier this week, Jesus argued he believes he and Aguero can be an effective partnership and the Premier League media agree.

“The stats back up Jesus's view that City score more goals when both strikers start.

“Since Jesus joined in January 2017, Pep Guardiola's side have played 57 matches in the top flight.

“Aguero has started up front without the Brazilian in 27 of those, with City scoring 66 goals at an average of 2.44 per match.

“In the 19 that Jesus has started without Aguero alongside him, that average rises to 2.74.

“But in the nine matches that the two have started together, 32 goals have been scored at an average of 3.6.

“That average dropped to 1.5 goals per match in the two matches where neither started, highlighting their importance to City's attack.

“Despite their improved scoring rate when they start together, the pair's link-up play for goals can still improve.

“Although Aguero has set up four goals for Jesus, the Brazilian has yet to return the favour in the PL, something he will hope to have the chance to do at Molineux this weekend.”
