Aguero: Title race not over

Sergio Aguero believes Manchester City are still in the Premier League title race - despite Roberto Mancini's omission that Manchester United cannot be caught.

City could close the gap on the league leaders to just two points with victory at Norwich in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off. United host Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday.

"Football is strange," he told BBC Radio Manchester. "When United come here [on April 30] we will see what happens.

"The supporters gave us the message that Wigan had scored and it was one more thing to make us happy during our game because we were winning."

Aguero was on the scoresheet as City romped to a 5-1 victory at the Etihad in last December's return fixture.

Nevertheless, the Argentine striker is expecting a tough game against Paul Lambert's side, who beat Tottenham last time out.

"It is important now that we go to Norwich and win the game. We're looking forward to the next game and hopefully we will win."
