Manchester City scored three goals in 11 minutes to fight back for a 5-3 win over Monaco in a wild Champions League match full of dazzling attacking play and awful defending on Tuesday. "As a spectator, it is so nice to see them". "I am really impressed how good they are - physical, strong". Other players to catch the eye include central midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and wingers Bernardo Silva and Kylian Mbappe.
The two strikers are fighters in the box - (Radamel) Falcao, (Valere) Germain.
"We are looking forward to playing against them".
Aguero, who has scored 18 goals this term, had been on the bench for three successive games before starting at Huddersfield on Saturday.
But Monaco have been caught by UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations - not to spend more than you earn - and must sell on players at a profit in order to break even.
The ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss urged his players to grasp a "beautiful" occasion, acknowledging City's vast riches can not buy the familiarity and ease with major European nights that were second nature to his previous employers. "It is very important for people who have to evaluate us and criticise us to see we are going in right direction".
So, when Jesus returns, could this spell the end for Aguero at City?
It's not been quite the season many Manchester City fans expected this year, as supporters wait to judge former Barcelona and Bayern Munich man, Pep Guardiola, on his first campaign in charge.
Leonardo Jardim's side have lost only three times in the league this season and they strode to victory in their group stage, which included two victories over Tottenham.
The player spent some of his youth years at City, and that's why newspaper Record picked him for an interview about the game. I think it won't be longer.
"But at the moment we are at Monaco and we are a big club and we have a future to forge, and that is why we give 100 per cent to Monaco". Possibly one of the toughest tests that the principality's defence will face this season, the 25-year-old is a game-changing talent that could decide the tie if he is allowed to do so.

As such, the club will look to sell and have now stated that £20m will be enough for any of the Premier League's top six clubs to pry him away, as reported by the Times - Arsenal and Liverpool are the most interested.
Guardiola went on to describe how Monaco's Leicester City-esque 4-4-2 formation suited Falcao to a tee, because "they attack inside and cross a lot - it's flawless for him".
