Aguero insists Manchester City will fight until the very end for the title

Argentina international Sergio Aguero has said that Manchester City will fight until the very end to defend their Premier League title against Liverpool. The Citizens have made an unfavourable start to the current campaign and they are presently nine points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are comfortably at the top of the league standings.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Aguero acknowledged that the Mancunian giants have made an uncharacteristic start to the season but assured that the players will give their utmost to defend their English crown, he told: “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? We have to trust our game, give our utmost effort, and just like usual, fight until the very end.”

The Citizens have been hugely impressive on the attacking point of view this season but they have not been able to replicate the same at the back. While they have only conceded 13 goals this term, they have been a number of games where they have looked vulnerable in defence without the presence of the injured Aymeric Laporte.

Fernandinho has regular featured as the makeshift central defender but he has lacked a regular partner with both John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi struggling for consistency. The Citizens return from the international break with a home game against Chelsea and that remains a must-win, if they are to keep up with the Reds in the title pursuit. The Citizens are currently nine points adrift of the top of the table but they can take heart from the fact that they recovered a seven-point deficit over the Reds last season to lift the Premier League title.
