The Man City striker has scored six goals in four games across 11 days since returning from a month out with a calf injury. Next in his sights is Tottenham on Wednesday.

With 14 Premier League goals to his name, there is still a chance Aguero could catch Suarez.

“The important thing is the goals contribute to the team’s victory, the team wins and we win titles,” Aguero said. “I don’t have any specific goals to reach, but (to score) as many as possible.”

MERSEYSIDE DERBY

Just one point separates Liverpool and Everton as they meet for the 222nd Merseyside derby, with both teams battling to finish in the Champions League positions.

Liverpool occupies fourth place, but is facing a real fight from Tottenham - which is level on 43 points - and Everton. Man United is six points behind Liverpool but has been given a major lift with Mata’s signing.

Everton has already beaten United and Chelsea this season, as well as drawing at Arsenal. It was also a minute away from beating Liverpool at Goodison Park in a classic derby in November, only for Daniel Sturridge to score and earn Liverpool a 3-3 draw.

“To win at Anfield would be just another statement win,” Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard said, “but, to be honest, even if we beat Liverpool we will still probably be under the radar, and I think that suits us.”
