Argentine forward Sergio Aguero says he is ready to help Manchester City shoot down Tottenham Hotspurs when both sides clash in the premier league on Sunday.
Sergio has scored ten goals in his last eight matches against the North London side, the same number he has recorded against Newcastle United, but he admits Spurs remain one of the clubs he most enjoys playing against.
“I’m not sure why I’ve scored so many goals against Spurs, it’s just happened that way,” said Sergio.
“I hope I can keep up that form on Sunday and hopefully help us win this match, but we know it won’t be easy.
“Last week we had Leicester who had only lost once away from home this season and now we face a Spurs team who have the same record. We were disappointed to lose last week but we will learn from it and use it positively.”
Manuel Pellegrini’s men were thrashed 4-1 in the reverse fixture at White Hart Lane but the former Atletico Madrid striker says that it’s not about revenge for him even if he will love the side to win.
City can ill-afford to follow a home defeat to a title rival with another set-back. Will the manner of the loss in North London give the Blues extra incentive today?
“It’s not a matter of payback, though it was painful to lose in such a way,” said Kun.
“It’s a matter of maintaining our performance level. There’s no personal vendetta against Tottenham. If we want to win the League, we have to win against our biggest contenders. That’s what it is about and we’ll be doing all we can to bounce back from the Leicester defeat on Sunday.”
Manchester City are fourth on the premier league log with 47 points while Tottenham Hotspurs sit second with 48 points, five points behind surprise leaders Leicester City.
