Mancini: Aguero’s goals can win us Premier League title

MANCHESTER City manager Roberto Mancini hopes striker Sergio Aguero’s double in yesterday’s FA Cup fifth round victory at the Etihad can spark a prolific run of form to help fire his side back into the Premier League title race.

The Argentine forward took his goal tally to three in three games and 13 for the season, with Carlos Tevez and Yaya Toure also on target against Leeds.

Aguero is someway short of the 30 goals he hit for City last season, but Mancini feels his £38m asset could hold the key to overturning their 12-point deficit on league leaders Manchester United.

“I hope Sergio will be like this from now until the end, because if Sergio is like this and our strikers continue to score a lot of goals, I think the championship is not finished,” said Mancini.
