MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini stressed the importance of Sergio Aguero’s return from injury after the Argentina international scored with his first touch after coming on as a substitute during City’s 5-0 demolition of Blackburn Rovers in an FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday.

"It's important that Sergio came back and scored, which he did with his first touch,” Pellegrini said, adding that the timing of his return is especially important, because, "We have so many games at this stage.” Indeed, City faces three crucial weeks in the Premier League as well as the League Cup and FA Cup. After hosting struggling Cardiff in the league on Saturday, City travels to West Ham for the second leg of its League Cup semifinal, then it hosts Watford in the FA Cup fourth round before traveling to sixth-place Tottenham. After that, the visit of third-place Chelsea awaits on Feb. 3.

City’s fifth against Blackburn represented the club’s 99th-goal in all competitions this season. "It's an important amount of goals," Pellegrini said. "When I arrived here, it was important to try and win a trophy, but it's important for the fans to come here and know that we are going to try and score the most amount of goals we can."
