Sergio Aguero could have the biggest say in the title race

Published Add your comment

The 2015/16 Premier League season has been one to remember, regardless of the final standings in May.

Leicester City have encapsulated neutral hearts across the country, giants Manchester City and Arsenal continue to do battle and Tottenham Hotspur continue to build ahead of steam as the dark horses of the equation.

However, as we enter the most crucial part of the season one specific player seems to be - much like Mauricio Pochettino's men - timing his return to form just at the right moment. That man is City's talisman Sergio Aguero.

The Premier League's deadliest marksman

On his day, the Argentinian forward is one of the world's finest. A player capable of winning a game single handily and dragging his lacklustre teammates over the finish line week-in-week-out.

In the modern game, a player of this calibre is a true rarity. Very few in the world can offer a similar service to a fully-fit Aguero.

90 goals in 136 Premier League games is an astonishing record given the harsh competitive nature of the division and it is these statistics which make him so decisive.

Every game he looks likely to score. Even when City themselves are playing poorly, the consistency of his scoring record is something to truly marvel at.

In their recent game against West Ham, Manuel Pellegrini's side were once again below par and failed to dictate proceedings like a team of their standing should. Who was there to bail them out once again? Aguero. Without him, it is very likely City would have ended up losing.

Performances like this can prove vital in a title race and it is something which the Argentine seems likely to deliver whenever fully fit.

Other contenders don't have a match-winner like him

Essentially, the summary of my point is that City currently possess the Premier League's greatest match-winner. Arsenal may have the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez but even these two superstars struggle in harsh environments when things are turning against them.


Aguero, on the other hand, is the decisive factor which all victorious teams crave. Martin Tyler perfectly summed up his impact earlier this season: "When there's Aguero, there's hope" when the Argentine pulled one back against Liverpool in what ended up in a 4-1 demolition.

There is a reason why he is the most expensive player on Barclays Dream Team, because simply, he is the division's most efficient and finest player available.

Individual players don't win titles on their own, but the very best will always contribute the most.
