LONDON: Champions Manchester City striker Sergio 'Kun''Aguero believes they are ready to roll over neighbours and bitter rivals Manchester United again this season.
The Argentina international's late winner in May meant City nicked the title off Wayne Rooney and United in dramatic fashion.
And Rooney, who hit 35 domestic goals last season, warned City last week that the champions will be up there to be shot at when the season kicks off this weekend.
But Aguero, who struck 30 goals in a brilliant first season, believes his teammates proved with their Community Shield 3-2 win over Chelsea on Sunday that they will take some stopping.
“We’ve made a nice start and this week we have our first game," he told The Sun.
“We’ve started off a step above the others and I hope to God we can make it stay like that. We have a phenomenal team and we are really starting to understand each other well.
“We’ll try to start like last season and do things well. I pray we can do it again. I’m not going to say it’s going to be easy but we have the team to do it.”
Aguero wrote his name into City folklore with his 93rd-minute winner against Queens Park Rangers on that unforgettable last day.
But he insists it was only the start.
“I understood the next day what I had done against QPR. But that’s gone now and I hope City can win more.”
