Manchester City have a better squad than title rivals, says Aguero

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has claimed that his club's squad is stronger than that of title rivals Manchester United and Chelsea. 

City invested heavily during Chilean Manuel Pellegrini's first transfer window in charge at the Etihad, with Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho, promising Montenegrin playmaker Stevan Jovetic, Atletico Madrid defender Martin Demichelis and Spanish duo Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas all arriving at the club at a considerable cost. 

Fierce rivals United meanwhile, now under the management of David Moyes, endured a rather torrid window in comparison and combative Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini proved to be the only significant addition to the squad who won the Premier League title last season.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea experienced a rather mixed summer, with the Portuguese failing to secure his primary target but still managing to add German international Andre Schurrle as well as veteran Cameroonian Samuel Eto'o and playmaker Willian from troubled Russian top-flight outfit Anzhi Makhachkala. 

And with the window now firmly shut Aguero, who famously netted the last-gasp winner against QPR that secured City their maiden Premier League triumph on a dramatic final day of the 2011/12 season, believes his side have a clear advantage.

"Our squad is better than United and Chelsea," Aguero told Gazzetta dello Sport. "Manchester United are our primary rival, then Chelsea.

"Tottenham are good, and then there is Liverpool."

City, who face a potentially daunting trip to Stoke on Saturday, currently occupy third place in the table after two wins from their opening three league fixtures. Chelsea are one spot above them with seven points while United, who suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, are currently seventh.
