That strike helped the Citizens to a 4-2 victory in the Champions League.

And City plan to recognise the striker’s feat with a presentation before the Arsenal clash on Sunday.

Asked if he could reach 200,  Aguero said: “Maybe and  I hope so.

“There’s no limit, for me every goal is important.

“But the important thing is to keep going in this way that I think is a good level.”

Yet the visit of the Gunners might be a reminder for City fans their talisman will not be around for ever.

City boss Pep Guardiola sanctioned a £60million bid for Arsenal star Alex Sanchez on deadline day and is expected to move for him again.

City insist Aguero, 29, signed a one-year extension to his deal until 2020 last year, even though it was never formally announced.

MANCHESTER CITY manager Pep Guardiola was involved in a furious tunnel bust-up with Wigan manager Paul Cook during their FA Cup clash.

The Spanish manager was seething after his left-back Fabian Delph was shown a straight red card for a dangerous tackle – after referee Anthony Taylor appeared to change his mind.

Referee Taylor appeared to change his mind in first-half injury time, after first having the yellow card in his hand and almost writing Delph’s name on it.

This clearly angered Guardiola, as well as the Man City players, who clearly felt Delph did not deserve to see red.

He went face-to-face with opposite number Cook, who remonstrated his point that it was a dangerous tackle on his man Max Power.

As the whistle was blown to bring the first 45 to an end, City players again argued with the officials feeling they had been hard done by.

But it was on the touchline, and then down the tunnel where tempers really began to rise.

Members of both coaching staffs, as well as security, had to get in between the two warring managers, with Guardiola clearly heard screaming about the decision.

Former Man City and England star Peter Reid was even caught up in the melee, helping to split the two angry camps.

And the BBC panel speaking at half-time were split as to whether Taylor made the correct decision on the sending off.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says he’s deeply insulted by a Fox News host’s “attack” on Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James.

Political commentator Laura Ingraham criticized the three-time NBA champion for his recent comments about social issues, suggesting he should “shut up and dribble.”

Jackson says it’s important for James, Stephen (STEH’-fehn) Curry, Kevin Durant and other NBA players to keep speaking out against injustice and the behavior of President Donald Trump.

Jackson says people told Jackie Robinson to just play baseball and told Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to stick to the church pulpit but Robinson and King replied that as men they had to speak out in a troubled world.

Jackson said Monday in that tradition James’ “slam dunk for justice is needed.”

James says he’ll continue to “talk about what’s really important.”
