Aguero’s team-mate Leroy Sane is relishing the title race with Jurgen Klopp’s side but admitted the battle to retain the Premier League trophy has been a gruelling one so far.
‘I think it’s kind of more enjoyable because it motivates you to say we want to be first, we can put pressure on them, and it makes you want to work harder,’ Sane said.
‘It’s never easy to defend a title. I think this is sometimes the reason for it – if we win then people want to win against the champions and be able to say they have beat the champions and other teams can’t. That’s why it’s so difficult for the next season.
‘All the teams want to play at their best level, everyone wants to beat the champions or want to be the champions themselves, so that makes it more difficult.
