Manchester City star Sergio Aguero reckons his side still consider Manchester United as the club’s biggest rivals, despite admitting that Liverpool are their main Premier League trophy challengers.
Liverpool and Manchester City prepare to meet this week, on Sunday, November 10.
The Citizens are in the second place of the Premier League table with 25 points, while league leaders Liverpool have 31 points.
“It may be the Clasico for television, but for us, the Clasico, it’s the match against United,” the Argentina international told France Football (via Sport Witness). “Liverpool has always been a tough opponent. But when I arrived, the team we were fighting for the title was United. Initially, it was something strange in the city that City competes against United. Then there was Chelsea .”
Aguero, who has scored nine league goals this season, continued: “But these last four seasons, Liverpool have become a very strong team and are now fighting with us to win the Premier League. It’s the only team in the league that can hurt us. They have been chasing a new league (title) for years. Last season, they didn’t go all the way, so they are very motivated. This year, they are in front of us and will try to go to the end.”
Addressing the weekend’s trip to Anfield, Aguero added: “We know that this is a ground where it’s very difficult to win, but we’ll try to do it because it has been a long time since the club last won there. This will be a key match for the title.”
