The Spain international took his goal tally for the season to 18 as he played a starring role in City's 6-0 victory in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final at the Etihad Stadium.

Negredo, who joined City from Sevilla for £20million last summer, said: "I'm in a great moment and I hope to have better than this but, yes, my feelings and my game make me think this could be the best moment.

"Well we have a big squad and the team has lot of confidence to win things here.

"A game like this requires a lot of intensity and control of the game, but we know that if they want to beat us at home the other team has to play really well."

Negredo has linked up well with Edin Dzeko in the absence of the injured Sergio Aguero for the past month and he is enjoying his partnership with the Bosnian.

"It's been really good," the 28-year-old said. "With great players it is very easy to play, we are always looking for each other.

"The partnership is working very well. He gave me a great assist and we always look after each other, and that's the important thing and it is best for the team, whoever plays."

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.
