Sergio Aguero the Premier League's best and ready to spark title surge

Sergio Aguero is as good as Luis Suarez, according to new Manchester City teammate Raheem Sterling.

Should you take on the considerable challenge of trying to list each Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Season since 1992-93, don't bother entering Sergio Aguero's name. In four seasons of eligibility, he has yet to make the grade.

It's a glaring error of omission for Aguero, who could easily lay claim to being the best striker in England throughout his four years at Manchester City, with 79 goals in just 122 Premier League matches. He has a scoring rate of 111.5 minutes per goal...

Manchester City could struggle to fit Kevin De Bruyne, Nicolas Otamendi

ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein responds to the reports suggesting Kevin De Bruyne's possible transfer from VfL Wolfsburg to Manchester City.

Nine points from three matches is the headline figure from Manchester City's Premier League campaign so far, yet City's dominance has actually been even more impressive.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have scored the most goals (eight) and conceded the fewest (zero) in the Premier League, and each of the three matches has been won in confident fashion. The passing has been slick, the movement unpredictable and they've looked solid in defence, too. For a team barely spoken about before the start of the...

Manuel Pellegrini and Man City have no more excuses in Champions League

Last year no Premier League side made it past the Champions League round of 16. How will they fare this year?

Manchester City fans could be forgiven for thinking that their club deserves a little bit of luck in the Champions League. Ever since they started in the competition in 2011, the draw for the group stage has been somewhat unkind.

Bayern Munich have been regular bedfellows, coming up against City three out of their four years in the competition before this season. In the 2012 draw, the one time that Munich weren't an opponent, the side, then led by Roberto Mancini, was thrown in with Real Madrid,...

Nasri and Kolarov driven by desire to play at Manchester City

The ESPN FC panel delve deeper into which team is the best defensively in the Premier League, if Craig Burley hates Manchester United and more.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti believes that Manchester City have a great amount of depth and will likely be adding to their squad.

When Samir Nasri dinked the ball over Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard at the weekend to score, he not only wrapped up City's third consecutive clean-sheet win of the season, and the club's record-equalling ninth in a row, but also underlined the massive task that City's rivals face in keeping up with them.

Nasri -- as well as City's other goalscorer on the day, Aleksandar Kolarov -- represent a stark reminder to the others of City's fundamental power: the amazing depth of that stellar squad.


Man City overshadow Chelsea's win with an impressive victory at Everton

Miss any Premier League action this weekend? The Exploding Heads sum up Manchester United's scoring struggles, Manchester City's perfect start and Chelsea's first win.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti believes that Manchester City have a great amount of depth and will likely be adding to their squad.
The FC crew break down Manchester City's return to form and contend that they are, without question, the team to beat.

There was a worrisome moment early on Sunday at Goodison Park while Man City laid siege to Everton's goal, just as they did last weekend against Chelsea. Tim Howard had made an acrobatic kick save to parry a fierce shot from Sergio Aguero when the game came to a dead stop. Players milled around on the touchline beckoning the medics to administer to a spectator who had suddenly taken ill in his seat behind the Toffees net.

There is no truth to the rumor that the person feeling queasy was Jose...

Manchester City resurgence down to Vincent Kompany finding his form

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says Manchester City are in fine form during the early stages of the new season.

Following a 4-2 defeat to Stuttgart in preseason, some Manchester City fans had real concerns over their defence heading into the new campaign.

One of the biggest criticisms of Manuel Pellegrini's side throughout their disappointing title defence in 2014-15 was their inability to remain solid at the back. The manager, a defender during his playing days, touched upon it in his news conference ahead of the opening fixture away at West Brom.

"I think 38 goals conceded in 38 games is too much," he said.
