Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is ready to face Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, three weeks after breaking a rib in a auto crash in Amsterdam, manager Pep Guardiola has said.
The Cityzens have taken s stunning lead to the top of the Premier League table, littered with goals and three wins from three in Europe. I think past year we played good football but, especially in the big games, we didn't win them.
Asked if the Manchester clubs will battle it out for first place, he told ESPN: "For the moment I think so, but everybody's still there". It's hard to say.
"With the same people and same manager they had problems winning away last season", he said. "I was playing constantly at a good level but I think the team is now playing at a very high level".
He was injured for that penalty shoot-out triumph against Liverpool at Wembley and being viewed as a front-runner for England's top individual awards this season is not causing De Bruyne to lose sight of the bigger picture.

OPEC and other key producers made a decision to curb oil output by 1.8 million bpd from January this year to March next year. The global benchmark crude traded at a premium of $5.99 to WTI for December.
City have been winning praise from pundits for their brand of attacking football and De Bruyne says City are playing close to Guardiola's vision for his team. "It's not for me to do that discussion".
But Sean Dyche's side won't make it easy for them as they arrive with an unbeaten away record.
And he says his country shouldn't go to Russian Federation if they don't believe they have the capability of winning the competition.
"Shay, I want to get you back at the club at some point in the future".
"It depends on everything - you need good play, the atmosphere needs to be good in the group, you need a little bit of luck, you need to be together to win a tournament and hopefully in that time we have it".
