The Manchester City manager has been impressed by what he has seen from the Argentine striker amid questions regarding his future at the Etihad

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has talked up "unbelievable" Sergio Aguero and lauded the forward for showing emotion.

The Argentina international was praised by Guardiola after scoring a brace in a 5-1 win over Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup on Wednesday.

An in-form Aguero has been needed by City with Gabriel Jesus injured, and the cup double took his tally to 22 goals in all competitions this season.

Speaking ahead of a trip to Sunderland in the Premier League on Sunday, Guardiola said he liked what he was seeing from Aguero.

"I love the way he plays," the Spaniard said.

"I love how he was angry for the decisions for example with the referee, how he reacted. How he made the transitions when he lost the ball.
