Pellegrini praise for Aguero

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini reserved special praise for Sergio Aguero after watching his side thrash Norwich City 7-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Pellegrini's men bounced back from last weekend's last-gasp defeat to Chelsea in style, registering their largest Premier League victory ever to maintain their 100 per cent home domestic record this season.

There were six different City scorers against the beleaguered Canaries, who could not live with the home side's attacking quality.

Aguero and David Silva were at their unplayable best and Pellegrini praised the ruthlessness of his players, who did not let up despite taking a 4-0 lead into half-time.

"We played really well. We didn't give any chance to Norwich and we scored seven goals so I'm very happy," he said.

"I don't think it's the best (performance this season). I never compare with another game but this was very, very good.

"It was important to keep a clean sheet and it's very important that the team plays exactly the same way, dependent (sic) on the score.

"Kun Aguero is one of the best three orfour players in the world and he must demonstrate this every game. He must continue working all game because with his quality he'll have a lot of options (to score more)."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
