Sergio Aguero: Manchester City striker determined to carry FA Cup success into t

Robert Mancini's side have endured some indifferent results of late - most significantly a 3-1 defeat at Southampton on February 9 - but Aguero scored twice to help them to make the FA Cup quarter-finals in style.

The Argentina international told City TV: "This helped us to do things well and give us confidence for the Chelsea game. It will be a good match, difficult, but obviously we need to go out and win.

"I think against Southampton none of us played well and it was a bad day for us all - an error which we hope not to repeat.

"We will try not to lose any more points in the league so we can keep all three points. I think we've played well and reached the next round. We need to continue like this."

On his own performance, Aguero added: "Yes, I had a great game. The whole team played well though. The important thing was to win and we did. So now we will have a bit of calm and can concentrate on the Chelsea game.

"Yes, they were two good goals but the most important thing was they helped us to win. So I'm happy for the goals and for the win.

"I really like this cup, played as a single leg. Obviously if we maintain our concentration, I think we have a team that can reach the final."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
