City have not found their form of last season and rival teams have made new signings but Roberto Mancini's men are still top of the table and Aguero feels that speaks volumes.

"I'm sure we will retain our title," said the 24-year-old forward. "It's true Chelsea, United, Arsenal and other teams have strengthened their squads intelligently compared with last year.

"But we're the champions and they want to take us on, so it's to be expected.

"It won't be easy for them as we're growing as a team and we get to know each other better each time we play. We're destined to win more trophies and barring any major setbacks we will.

"When I first arrived at City after my first game against Swansea, I said I hoped that this was the start of something big.

"Our Premier League title showed it possibly was and that we had great things ahead. As I said, I firmly believe the best is yet to come.

"It's true we don't have the same flair in games we had last season and we've scored less goals for sure.

"But the Premier League table says something different. We're hard to beat, top of the table and defending well so we can't be doing that badly can we?"

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
