Sky Sports pundit Danny Mills has said that Sergio Aguero remains the first-choice pick for the centre-forward role at Manchester City despite the promising form of Gabriel Jesus this term. The duo have regularly been swapped for the striking duties of late but Aguero has seemingly got a head start amid his strong impact in the big games.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Mills highlighted that Aguero is four years ahead of where Jesus wants to be with the former’s movement and sharpness being a delight to watch. He added that Aguero should remain the undisputed choice to lead the line, provided he can maintain his fitness, he said: "In and around the box his [Aguero’s] movement and his sharpness is class. When he plays for Man City he adds a different dimension. He is three or four years ahead of where Jesus wants to be, if he's fit he is first name on the teamsheet."
“Meanwhile, City are currently just three points behind Liverpool at the top of the standings“ and Mills feels the title could be decided by the slenderest of margins with both teams difficult to separate from each other, he said: "It doesn't take a lot for the top sides to become normal almost, maybe even a five to 10 per cent drop off. For Manchester City and Liverpool this is now all about pressure now and “who can deal with“ it best."
Manchester City are scheduled to face Everton on the road on Wednesday night and a victory in that game should ensure their jump to the summit ahead of Liverpool on goal difference. Initially, they were prepared to face the Toffees near the end of February but the match has been preponed due to their League Cup final against Chelsea which coincides with gameweek 27.
