City are third in the Premier League, 11 points behind leaders Chelsea, who have played one game more, and face second-tier Huddersfield Town in an FA Cup fifth-round replay on Wednesday.
After a 0-0 draw in the original tie, the visitors led when Harry Bunn's shot went through Claudio Bravo's legs.
Substitute striker Kelechi Iheanacho then added gloss to the scoreline in the 91st minute, his deft touch on a Jesus Navas cross deceiving Coleman.
"He is good with the ball, if he is one against one, two against one, he doesn't miss the balls, he scored two goals, gave another one, created a lot of chances".
"It was the best performance I have ever seen from Sergio, for many, many things", said Guardiola.
The teams played to a goal-less draw on February 18, and Wednesday's replay game will determine which side advances in world's soccer's oldest competition.
Following Jesus' injury, Iheanacho has made the matchday squad for the next two games but was on the bench for the whole duration of both games.
Joel Coleman gathered Kevin De Bruyne's powerful free-kick at the second attempt and City felt they should have had a penalty when Jon Stankovic appeared to handle a De Bruyne effort soon after.
Bravo has struggled to make an impact since controversially replacing Joe Hart earlier in the season and has recently been dropped in favour of Willy Caballero.
Aguero said: "I'm not thinking about any Spanish teams or anything else, I'm only thinking about playing in these three months that I have left and helping the team".
The 35-year-old was Guardiola's first choice before signing Claudio Bravo in August 2016.
Guardiola also claimed Bravo would not be affected by the reaction of the crowd towards him. And the time City played before that, they served up a belting match with Huddersfield. Even though we had three good opportunities to score again, they have scored five.
"We have shown too much respect, unfortunately, against a very strong Manchester City side", the German said.
