Aguero targets derby win

Says win vital to secure fourth place

Sergio Aguero believes that Manchester City must beat rivals United this weekend if they are to secure fourth place on the Barclays Premier League.

City have seen their title challenge stumble in recent weeks and now face a challenge to hang onto fourth spot and Champions league qualification with both West Ham and United breathing down their necks.

The Hammers are just two points behind City in fifth, while victory for United at the Etihad on Sunday would see Louis van Gaal's side move to within a point of their Manchester rivals.

"We have to win, even more so because the title is slipping further and further away and we have to make sure we take fourth place," the Argentinian striker said.

"We want the title, but we have to take into account that United are right behind us and it will be a tough game. We will have to play intensely.

"I think that over the last five years City have always competed hard in the derby. At one point United were huge and City have invested a lot of money to bring in quality players, and that has levelled the playing field.

"But I don't know what is happening at United. I focus on City and Sunday, and we are thinking about winning and nothing else."

Aguero, who has scored 21 goals in all competitions this season, revealed that he will return to boyhood club Independiente when his current deal runs out in 2019, but for now he remains focused on winning silverware with City.

"You are born in one club as a kid, and you always want to return to where you started. I have always said it, I will go back," he added.

"But right now I am thinking about winning the Champions League with Manchester City. We will see what happens in the future."
