Soccer – Hart says Aguero is ready to snare Foxes


Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is banking on “killer” striker and team-mate Sergio Aguero to put a major dent in Leicester City’s Premier League title challenge at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Claudio Ranieri’s surprise table-toppers face a huge test of their title-winning credentials in the lunchtime kick-off against Manuel Pellegrini’s men – before another tough away examination against Arsenal.
England’s number one goalkeeper Hart says deadly Argentina goal-getter Aguero, who has 13 Premier League goals from 17 appearances, can stop the East Midlands club in their tracks.
“He’s a phenomenal player, he’s a killer. He got one chance [in the 1-0 win at Sunderland on Tuesday], stuck it in the corner and won us the game,” he told reporters.
Victory on Saturday will take the Premier League’s big-spenders level on 50 points with Leicester at the summit and Hart is expecting more twists and turns between now and the end of the season.
“We’ve got to be aware of what’s around us, especially Leicester, because we play them on Saturday,” Hart said.
“We know if we win our games, we’ll win this league. We’re three points behind Leicester with not a bad goal difference compared to them.”
Sergio Aguero is currently priced 8/11 by Bet365 in the ‘to score at any time’ betting and quoted 3/1 ‘to score two or more’ goals against Leicester City on Saturday.
