Sergio (Kùn) Aguero did just that on his Manchester City debut as well as creating a goal for Spanish international, David Silva, in a 4-0 win over Premier League new-boys, Swansea City.
Aguero, who began his career at Independiente in Argentina, scored 74 goals in 175 competitive appearances for his former club, Atletico Madrid, and this undoubtedly led to interest from City boss Roberto Mancini as well as other Premier League clubs including Liverpool and Chelsea.
With Carlos Tevez still looking to exit Manchester in the final weeks of the summer transfer window, Mancini was forced to bring in a player with the class and skill to guarantee goals at Premier League level and in Europe's top competition, the Champions League.
Aguero showed this class and goal-scoring ability on debut against Swansea and the blue half of Manchester will be hoping and praying that this glimpse of pure ability will turn into something more permanent and possibly lead them to a maiden Premier League title.
These fans must bear in mind that, while Aguero looked world class in his first performance for the Blues, it was in fact against a tiring Swansea defence who were overwhelmed by the quality that City contain throughout their squad.
There is no doubt, however, that the 23-year-old is a talented young player and it will be interesting to see how he copes facing more accomplished defences that the Premier League has to offer, starting with a trip to the Reebok Stadium to face a Bolton side who City share the Premier League top spot with after the Lancashire club fired four past Queen's Park Rangers on opening day.
A clue to how much Aguero is worth to a top European side like Manchester City has clearly been shown by his former side, Atletico Madrid, who have just agreed to sign flamboyant striker, Falcao, for a fee in the region of £35 million from FC Porto as they look to replace the Argentine at the "Estadio Vicente Calderon".
Aguero famously married Argentinian legend Diego Maradona's daughter and it has to be said that Mancini and everyone else connected with the Manchester club will be hoping that he can follow in his father-in-law's footsteps and become a true footballing great. Only time will tell...
What is clear is that Aguero is a top class player and, barring injury, the young striker will be aiming to lead his side to many trophies over the next few seasons whilst picking up some personal awards along the way.
With the mouth-watering prospect of Silva, Toure, Aguero and Johnson in City's attacking line-up, it is clear that they are fast becoming the 'noisy neighbours' again that the red side of Manchester had almost forgotten about in recent years.
