  • Sergio Aguero's first-half goal was his 100th at Etihad Stadium

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero is a "legend" who will "decide his own future" after seeing the Argentina striker help his side thrash Bournemouth.

Aguero scored two goals and brilliantly made another as the Premier League leaders racked up their 17th successive win in the competition.

There has been speculation that the 29-year-old - who is City's all-time leading scorer - feels marginalised by his manager, and could leave in the summer.

He was left on the bench for City's win over Manchester United earlier this month and showed his frustration by throwing his gloves to the floor when he was taken off against Tottenham last weekend.

"I understand players when they are substitutes and don't play," Guardiola said. "They are sad and they are upset.

"But sometimes I think Gabriel Jesus deserves to play too, and Bernardo Silva or Eliaquim Mangala too. If they are not happy with me, that is not a problem - the most important thing is that they respect each other.

"I respect a lot about Sergio, about all he has done, what he has done and what he will do in the future.

"He is a legend and he will decide absolutely everything about his life and his future, and I am delighted to have him here with Gabriel and all of the squad."
