Aguero: We will not give up in title fight

Man City forward determined to win Barclays Premier League this season

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has made a big impact in his first season in England

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has insisted the club will battle until the end to try to win this season's Barclays Premier League title.

City have been top of the table for most of the season but have faltered recently in winning only one of their last three League matches, which has allowed rivals Manchester United to take a three-point lead.

There are still eight matches left this campaign, including the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Monday 30th April, and Aguero says his side will not give up in their pursuit of a first Barclays Premier League crown.

"Why wait until next season if we can win it now?" Aguero told the club's official website.

"I can promise you that we’ll be fighting until the very end. We all want to make it and though it won't be easy, we believe we can win the Premier League this season.

"Winning titles is about never giving up and we will never give up. I want to win it this season and then many more with City after that."

Completely settled

Aguero has had a superb first season in England after completing his move from Spanish side Atletico Madrid last summer.

The 23-year-old Argentine has played a key role in City's push for the title, scoring 17 goals in 27 League appearances, and says he feels completely settled at the club.

"I was able to adapt quickly to the team and to the Premier League," he said. "That was all due to my team-mates, the club and especially the fans.

"We have had a great season but there is so much more to come from this team. I've been told we've broken historic records and that's already an achievement. I've also learnt it's important to respect our progress an on-going process. 

"As for moving to England, my family and I feel we've adapted really well to living in Manchester and we haven't been here for too long, either.

"The staff of the club and my team-mates have been very supportive, especially [compatriot] Pablo Zabaleta, who been here for quite a while.

"Everyone has made us feel like home. We still would like to know the city better and maybe visit the outskirts more, but we don't have too much free time on our hands.

"But from what we've seen, we find it quite nice. We feel at home here."

Manchester City's next match is at home to Sunderland on Saturday as they look to extend a 20-match winning streak at the Etihad in the League.
