Manchester City, five points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, will be banking on star striker Sergio Aguero to ensure they don’t fall further adrift.
An eight-point deficit at this stage of this season could mean curtains for City’s title challenge, but there are few better players to have in your side when you need a goal than the prolific Argentinian international.
He has notched 14 league goals this term and is second only to Chelsea forward Diego Costa, who has netted three more, in the league’s top scorers chart.
Furthermore, Aguero was on the mark for City in the corresponding fixture at Stamford Bridge last term.
After Andre Schurrle broke the deadlock for Chelsea in the 33rd minute, the diminutive South American equalised in the 49th and that goal looked as though it would be enough to earn City a point – until Fernando Torres struck with a rare winner in the last minute.
City certainly need a win after successive 2-0 home losses – to Arsenal in the league and Championship side Middlesbrough last weekend in the FA Cup – and they will have had time to work the jetlag out of their system after a trip to Dubai that seemed to lead to their downfall against Boro.
They will face a Chelsea side who are bound to be exhausted after their efforts against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg on Tuesday night, which went to extra time.
Although the Blues reached the final 2-1 on aggregate by virtue of their 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge in midweek, their defence looked vulnerable – as it did in the stunning 4-2 home defeat by League One Bradford City last weekend. Aguero will have taken note.
