Manchester City lucky to have Kevin de Bruyne, says Sergio Aguero

The award, for the world's best player, has been shared between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the past decade.

"It's going well with his son but now the last three game he's injured", Guardiola said.

"The record he has - he has scored four or five years in a row 20 goals in the Premier League - there is nothing more you can say".

Kevin De Bruyne pulled the strings throughout in another majestic display for the champions-elect, but Aguero stole the headlines with a four-goal haul which takes him level with Mohamed Salah in the Premier League's top-scorers list.

His three assists in City's 5-1 trouncing of Leicester on Saturday brought his tally for the season in all competitions to a staggering 18 while he's also popped up eleven goals this term. With five games left to play beyond that, Jose Mourinho's men would be incapable of catching their rivals.

"My example is words; the players' examples are the facts and one of the best players we have is the guy who runs the most and fights the most".

And United fans were absolutely dreading the possibility of this happening on Twitter, with one user urging the Red Devils to lose games before then to ensure it doesn't happen.

"He knows and everyone knows to be there you have to win titles and titles and titles".

"You have to be there [in the Champions League] to win and if you are not there in the latter stages you will not be nominated". "That is why I am very happy, personally and for the team".

"I don't like to complain about referees in this kind of situation", he said.

"I am very pleased with the way everything is going for me".

He converted De Bruyne's cross in the 48th minute and collected another pass from him to fire through Kasper Schmeichel's attempted save. I am not busy with that before.

The former Manchester United and England star felt it sent out the wrong message to City's youth players about their chances of progressing to the first-team. I am doing what I have to do. Pep Guardiola has the side playing some slick football but is still looking for players, who can make them even harder to beat.
