Summer acquisitions stand to tip title race in Manchester City's favour

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has openly discussed a potential move to Major League Soccer after his career with Manchester City.

The purse strings were loosened at Manchester City during the summer with one obviously single-minded goal to the fore: to allow Manuel Pellegrini to improve on what had been deemed City's weak 2014-15 challenge. Enough cash was made available for the Chilean to purchase Fabian Delph, and on a much grander scale, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne.

Eight games into the league season, and City are top of the table, two points clear of Arsenal and Manchester United in second and third, respectively....

Sergio Aguero's goals earn him No. 1 in the Player Power Rankings

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Paul Mariner break down this week's Player Power Rankings.

Each week, ESPN FC's worldwide editorial desks nominate their top 10 performers from the weekend action, and the results are collated into a final Player Power Rankings countdown.

1. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

After scoring one in his first seven Premier League games of the season, Aguero hit form in a big way to net five times -- in a 20-minute spell -- vs. Newcastle. The haul matched the all-time...

Sergio Aguero a five-star City striker and a perfect 10 for Newcastle rout

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop breaks down Sergio Aguero's incredible five-goal haul against Newcastle.

Sergio Aguero's stunning five-goal haul in Manchester City's 6-1 win over Newcastle ensured they stopped the rot and avoided losing a third Premier League match in a row for the first time in seven years.

Manuel Pellegrini's side eased through the gears to produce their best display in weeks, hitting back after Aleksandar Mitrovic's shock opener.

The headlines will rightly belong to Aguero -- who scored five in 20 minutes -- but kudos also should go to the manager for the introduction of Jesus Navas....

1. Five-star Aguero enters the record books

The smile -- or was it a disbelieving laugh? -- on Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini's face as he patted Sergio Aguero on the back said it all. There were still 25 minutes to play when Aguero left the pitch, replaced by Wilfried Bony, but anything that happened in the game's closing stages...

Manchester City need boost against Newcastle to spark another run

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno has praised Manchester City's reaction to adversity following their UCL win.

Manuel Pellegrini takes Manchester City into the weekend match with Newcastle in a strange state of mind.

Although the last five games have included heartening victories away from home in the Capital One Cup (4-1 at Sunderland) and in the Champions league (2-1 in Monchengladbach), his side's league form has suddenly hit the rocks. In the Premier League, having shot out of the blocks, City seem now to have hit a brick wall.

Even on top of the recent setbacks at home to West Ham and away at Tottenham,...

Man City, Sergio Aguero show their mettle in comeback win at Gladbach

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno discuss what Manchester City's comeback win means for both their UEFA Champions League and Premier League campaigns.

Manchester City's turbulent relationship with the Champions League shows no signs of easing into calmer waters. With their hopes of being able to top this season's group surely dangling in the balance, Manuel Pellegrini's team pulled a brilliant half hour out of nowhere to get themselves back on track with a 2-1 win at Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday.

The German side must have wondered how they'd not managed to beat Joe Hart by half-time. The England international had superbly saved a penalty...
