Sergio Aguero: Manchester City striker expected to threaten Manchester United ag

The diminutive Argentina striker stunned Old Trafford in April with a solo effort to win the game and Pellegrini is tipping Aguero to come good again at the Etihad Stadium.

Pellegrini said: "Sergio is very important, he is an incredible player, he makes a difference in every game he plays.

"He didn't do a very good pre-season because he has a lot of problems but now every game he is playing better.

"I am sure he will play a very good game on Sunday because Sergio always appears in important games.

"Every match against Manchester United is a special match. Of course it is very important but I don't work with just the confidence to play one match.

"Every match we win is confidence for me, for the club, for the players. Winning the derby is very, very important but it is not the last match of the season."

Vincent Kompany proved his fitness in the Champions League in midweek and David Silva has returned to training but Pellegrini was coy on making wholesale changes to his side.

He added: "We will see. We have seven matches in 21 days, it is normal to have some rotation."

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.
