Sergio Aguero saved Manchester City once again Saturday night against Queens Park Rangers; the Argentinian hit the net twice at Loftus Road to scavenge his side a crucial point.  

The reigning champions found themselves struggling to compete with Harry Redknapp's team, the London club went ahead with a great strike from Charlie Austin in the first half and Martin Demichellis was the victim of an own goal later in the game.

But of course, that man Aguero scored twice to pull City from behind and break the hearts of the QPR fans.

This isn't the only game in which Aguero has saved City; the 26-year-old has been the standout player for Manuel Pellegrini's side so far this season. But can Aguero keep it up all year long?

Injuries have always been a thorn in the side of the Manchester City striker, but he has managed to keep himself off the injury list for the majority of this season.

You just get that feeling, however, that the Argentinian will struggle to stay fit for much longer and if that is the case, City may well find themselves in trouble.

Other key individuals in the team haven't performed to their full potential thus far, the goalscoring machine of last year Yaya Toure has hit a slump, the Ivorian has only found the net once in the Premier League so far this campaign. Without him, City are looking to Aguero in the expectation of him being their talisman in replace of the central midfielder.

The only other out-field player to be proud of their displays so far is David Silva, the little magician has been City's best player barring Aguero, however, the Spaniard is currently out with an injury sustained a couple of weeks ago against Newcastle in the Capital One Cup, adding to the problems for Manuel Pellegrini.

Under-performing stars

Joe Hart has been key for Pellegrini's side in recent games; the England number one has been in top form and has saved his team from conceding some pretty sloppy goals. After a questionable season last time around, Hart is coming good at a time in which his side need him.

Overall, City haven't been playing the way we all know they can, whether that is down to confidence or managerial issues, something desperately needs to change.

You would think as the season progresses, the club from the blue side of Manchester will start to pick up the pace. For the moment, however, the Manchester City manager and supporters will hope Sergio Aguero keeps off the injury list and stays on the score-sheet.
