Aguero issues title battle warning to Liverpool

Manchester City

Sergio Aguero has vowed Manchester City will "fight until the very end" in their Premier League title battle with Liverpool.

City visit Merseyside on Sunday in the biggest match of the season to date, with high stakes all round.

A home victory would see the table-topping Reds stretch the gap between the sides to nine points, while success for Pep Guardiola’s men would halve the current deficit to three.

City would need to halt a sorry sequence at Anfield to achieve the latter result, having last won there in 2003.

Regardless of who takes the spoils this weekend, Aguero has no doubt his side will push all the way in pursuit of a third successive Premier League trophy.

“We’ll fight until the very end, it’s my personal philosophy and a motto of this football club,” he told the club’s official website.

“We’ve made it abundantly clear last year, holding the lead during that gruelling home stretch.

“This season didn’t start off the way we wanted it to and some of the results we’ve had weren’t the ones we set out to achieve. However, there’s a quite a bit of road ahead of us. It certainly won’t be easy, but who said it would ever be?”

Aguero is again enjoying another prolific season for the Citizens, with 13 goals in all competitions keeping Brazilian starlet Gabriel Jesus in a supporting role for much of the campaign.

Guardiola has described Argentina international Aguero as an “exceptional player” who “was born scoring goals and will die scoring goals”.

Back in January, City were the last team to defeat Liverpool, with the Merseysiders currently on a 28-match unbeaten run in the Premier League that includes 19 wins from their last 20 games.

The Reds have also gone 45 home matches without defeat, the second longest unbeaten run in Premier League history.
