Sergio Aguero scored in either half at Turf Moor to help Manchester City recover from a goal down to beat Burnley 2-1, taking his side back to the top of the Premier League.

Back-to-back wins for the Citizens in the top flight for the first time in more than two months puts them top of the pile, although Liverpool and Chelsea are still to play this weekend in a tight race for the title.

Aguero was again the key man for the visitors, scoring twice to join Diego Costa at the top of the scoring charts and taking his own personal tally to 33 goals in his last 34 league outings, but it could have been a different story had Burnley held on to their first-half lead.

Paul Robinson, handed his first Burnley start in the absence of the previously ever-present Tom Heaton - and a first appearance of any sort in senior football in 26 months - was thrown straight into the deep end with a trio of first-half stops.

The first came seven minutes in when pushing aside a trademark Aguero drive from 20 yards out, which was heading for the bottom corner if not for his intervention down low.
