It was a weekend of contrasting fortunes for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Man City’s Sergio Aguero. First Aguero netted a brace to draw level in the race for the Premier League’s golden boot with Rooney, before seeing his City side forfeit a two-goal lead against Fulham. Rooney helped United into a three-goal lead against Chelsea, before proceeding to slip over as he took a penalty and then scuff a tap-in opportunity.
Despite these lows, the Manchester pair have been by far and away the most prolific strikers in the Premier League this season and as a result comparisons between the two have been made and the question has been asked: who would you rather have in your team? Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini would both back their own players but what about the fans?
The artist and virtuoso that is Aguero could yet become the best striker in the Premier League but I am sure that a certain English striker may have something to say on the matter. It could make for an intriguing battle alongside that of the Premier League title in Manchester.
