Manchester City must beat Saints to show Chelsea who real title rivals are

ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses what Sergio Aguero means to Manchester City and Steve Nicol gives his take on the helping hand City had in the Champions League.

Not a single soul wearing the smart blue clothes of Manchester City will be rubbing their hands with glee at the thought of a long trip to visit Southampton this weekend. The south coast club have form for upsetting City down the years.

Before the move to St Mary's in 2001 the Saints played in a quaint shoebox ground at The Dell, a place where City almost never came away with anything but knotted limbs and bulging eyes.

The Dell, a ground where those who suffer from claustrophobia would not have...

Participating is the focus for English clubs in the Champions League

Matchday 5 of the UEFA Champions League saw Messi shatter the goal record, Aguero save City and Zlatan's triumphant return.

Three wins and a draw: a much better week for English clubs in the Champions League than of late. Chelsea soared at Schalke, Manchester City were saved by the genius of Sergio Aguero, Arsenal tamed a tormentor in Borussia Dortmund, leaving only Liverpool to concede a late equaliser to Ludogorets.

"I was disappointed in the goal at the end but it's irrelevant," said Brendan Rodgers. A draw did not change Liverpool's task for their final match -- beating Basel was required, anyway.

Surprise top of the table clash as City prepare to face bogey-team Saints

ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses what Sergio Aguero means to Manchester City and Steve Nicol gives his take on the helping hand City had in the Champions League.

As the mass exodus from the Southampton dressing room took place over the summer, there will have been half an eye from Manchester City fans on two things. The first was that some of those departing had been linked with a move to the Blues, but the second was that their side might not struggle on the south coast as they have done recently if the Saints' first team all went marching off.

Somehow, Southampton lost some top class players, a manager and a chairman -- and appear to have come out stronger...

Man City alive in a Champions League script only Tarantino could write

Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick to lead Manchester City to victory against 10-man Bayern Munich.

I have no idea whether Manuel Pellegrini is a film buff. But part of me likes to imagine him in the wee hours of Wednesday morning -- once the emotional high of Tuesday's events had turned into a nice buzz of the kind that keeps you awake and restless -- padding down to his den, pouring himself a drink, switching on the TV and flicking aimlessly through the channels.

In my imagination, he stumbles across Quentin Tarantino's 1994 classic "Pulp Fiction." It's at the part when small-time preppy...

Sergio Aguero proves he is the man who can keep Man City in Europe

Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick to lead Manchester City to victory against 10-man Bayern Munich.

MANCHESTER, England -- Snatching glory from the jaws of farce and with typical poise, Sergio Aguero reversed the recent trend of Manchester City's uneasy relationship with Champions League football.

"If you want to succeed at anything, you need a special player in special form, otherwise you just don't win anything," said the relieved City captain, Vincent Kompany. "When he's in that form, he makes things achievable that otherwise wouldn't be."

Player Ratings: Second half subs help pave way for Aguero heroics

Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard commented on the 'special night' at the Etihad with their vital 3-2 win over Bayern Munich.

We'll fight to the end, the song goes. There's another one too, less polite, with a liberal spattering of swear words, as you would expect from any rugged post industrial northern English city worth its salt. On Tuesday night, one cannot begrudge City fans for singing them all to get it off their chests.

Manchester City, the team that doesn't fit in the Champions League, the side that everyone laughs at for making a mess every time they have a chance to proceed, finally showed that this competition...
