Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has admitted that Liverpool is the only team that can hurt them in the Premier League this season.
Aguero was interviewed with France Football and was asked about Liverpool usurping Manchester United as City’s main challengers in recent years.
Aguero said; “It may be the Clasico for television, but for us, the Clasico, it’s the match against United,” Aguero said in reference to City’s impending visit to Anfield.
“Liverpool has always been a tough opponent. But when I arrived, the team we were fighting for the title was United. Initially, it was something strange in [Manchester] that City competes against United. Then there was Chelsea. But these last four seasons, Liverpool have become a very strong team and are now fighting with us to win the Premier League. They are the only team in the league that can hurt us. They have been chasing a new league title for years. Last season, they didn’t go all the way, so they are very motivated. This year, they are in front of us and will try to go to the end.”
