Manchester City 1-1 Middlesbrough: Aguero Strike Not Enough For Guardiola’s Men [HOW IT HAPPENED]

Sergio Aguero’s strike was not enough to ensure victory for Manchester City.

Marten de Roon’s injury-time leveller snatched a draw for Middlesbrough as Manchester City were made to pay for a sloppy second-half performance at Etihad Stadium.

Sergio Aguero put City ahead, stabbing in Kevin de Bruyne’s cross for his 150th City goal with their 18th shot of the afternoon.

Boro were hugely improved after the break and Alvaro Negredo brought a fine save from Claudio Bravo with an audacious lob from the halfway line.

Pep Guardiola’s side looked to have withstood the isolated spells of Boro pressure but De Roon’s header from George Friend’s 91st-minute cross denied them.


It was the midfielder’s first goal in a Middlesbrough shirt, and came just a minute after De Bruyne missed an empty net following a mistake by Boro keeper Victor Valdes.

Five minutes before that, Aguero missed a clear chance to seal the win, firing badly wide when found by Jesus Navas in the box.
