Attacking firepower

The raw numbers do not cast Man City’s BPL
title challenge in a favourable light at this point
of the season.
After 26 matches played, fourth-placed City
are six points back from top spot and beating
leaders Leicester City and third-placed Arsenal
in only one key statistic – goal difference.
City, thanks largely to the attacking prowess of
the fit-again and in-form Sergio Aguero, are on
+20, compared to the Foxes’ +19 and the
Gunners’ +18.
If the Argentina star, who has netted 14 goals
in 19 league outings this term, can avoid injury
and keeps banging in the goals, Manuel
Pellegrini’s team have a chance, although they
have some way to go to match Tottenham
Hotspur’s goal difference of +27.
Championship credentials
While City are battling a lengthy injury list and
inconsistency at the back, they have one
advantage over all three of their direct
championship rivals.
The core of key players at Etihad Stadium know
what it takes to win the Barclays Premier
League. The likes of Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany
and Yaya Toure did so under Roberto Mancini
in 2011/12 and again with Pellegrini at the
helm in 2013/14 .
That know-how could yet offer something of
an inside-track as City seek to arrest their
recent slump and galvanise their challenge for
the biggest prize in English football.
Guardiola’s imminent arrival
If the chance to give outgoing manager
Pellegrini a winning send-off is not motivation
enough for Man City’s heavyweight talents,
they will surely be desperate to impress new
head coach Pep Guardiola ahead of the arrival
of the former Barcelona boss from Bayern
Munich in the off-season.
