James Milner: Has praised team-mate Sergio Aguero after his winning goal in the

The Argentine international came off the bench to fire in the winning goal after a weaving run across the United box leaving defenders trailing in his wake.

Milner said: "He is not bad is he? He is so sharp when you get him in around the box, him and Carlos (Tevez) together up front.

"We train with them every day. I was speaking to Joleon (Lescott) who says he loves playing against them in training because he knows when he plays against anyone else in the league it is an easier day.

"He is so sharp around the box. His composure and his finish at the end was superb. It gave us a deserved win.

"Maybe the title is a bit out of reach now, but that changes nothing to us - whether it is or it isn't. It is still mathematically possible.

"All our concentration is on winning every game from now until the end of the season. Hopefully that will get us at least one trophy."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
