Sergio Aguero scored a brace in his final Premier League appearance as Manchester City thrashed Everton 5-0.

Sergio Aguero scored a brace in his final Premier League appearance as Manchester City thrashed Everton 5-0.

The hosts flew into the lead after just ten minutes as Kevin De Bruyne rifled a stunning effort past Jordan Pickford from 20 yards.

And three minutes later they made it two as Gabriel Jesus cut inside before lashing past the England goalkeeper.

The Toffees kept their heads up and won themselves a penalty as Ruben Dias took down Dominic Calvert-Lewin as the striker bore down on goal.

But Gylfi Sigurdsson’s effort from the spot was well saved by the diving Ederson who kept City’s 2-0 lead intact heading into half time.

City put the game to bed less than ten minutes into the second half as the brilliant Phil Foden shifted onto his right foot before lashing past Pickford from 12 yards.

The 10,000 supporters then roared Aguero on to the pitch for his final Premier League appearance for the club.

And the striker had his fairytale finish, scoring with a typically clinical inside the box just minutes after entering the fray, before netting another with a brilliant header following Fernandhino’s cross.

The Champions finished their Premier League season in style with the perfect preparation for next week’s Champions League final, while Everton missed out on a Europa League spot.
