Boasting the best minutes-per-goal ratio of any striker in Premier League history, it is unsurprising that Aguero has proved to be a real menace to United during his six-and-a-half years in English football.

All in all, the 29-year-old has scored seven goals in nine top-flight meetings against the division’s most-successful ever side, averaging one for every 89 minutes that he is on the field.

That does not make good reading for United fans, as Aguero failed to find the net in the most recent encounter – a bland goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium in April – and was also unsuccessful in the 1-0 loss for his side in March 2016.

In fact, Aguero last netted a league goal against this weekend’s opponents 31 months ago when City fell to a 4-2 loss, firing blanks in two matches and missing two others through injury and suspension since then.

Still, seven goals in nine Premier League matches is a positive return in a fixture of this magnitude, particularly when considering that those goals have helped the Citizens to five wins and a draw during that time.

Away from the league it is a different matter, though, with the Independiente product finding himself on the losing side in two previous cup fixtures – 1-0 in last season’s EFL Cup fourth-round tie and 3-2 in the third round of the 11-12 edition.

Aguero scored in the latter of those games, pulling back a second goal for his side after falling 3-0 down inside 38 first-half minutes, but those losses have skewed his win rate against United somewhat.

The only other meeting between the two sides over the last six seasons came in the 2011-12 Community Shield, which Aguero watched from the bench just weeks after joining the club from Atletico Madrid in what has proved to be one of the best deals in Premier League history.
