Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has said is the fittest he has been in years, following knee surgery in April.

The Argentine missed the end of last season after undergoing keyhole surgery in April, but the striker has returned in blistering form, scoring two in the community shield and a hat-trick against Huddersfield Town in August.

“I feel fantastic. I don’t feel any sort of discomfort,” said City’s record goal scorer. “Durign the past few years, I felt pains at times and when last season came to an end, we decided it would be best to start treatment. And the results were very positive.”

Aguero returned to action at the World Cup where he scored two goals for Argentina, which was his first competitive games since the Champions League Quarter Final tie against Liverpool. The striker scored both City’s goals in the 2-0 win over Chelsea, which took him past the 200 mark for the club.

“Dr Cugat did amazing work with my knee. I‘m not sure if this is the best start to a season for me, but it’s the best I’ve felt in years. It shows in my game.”

Blues fans will be hoping Aguero can get back on the scoresheet when the blues entertain Fulham at the weekend.
