International

Negredo In Best Form Of His Career

Manchester City striker, Alvaro Negredo, believes he is in the best form of his career after netting a hat-trick against West Ham in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

The Spain international has been superb, particularly since City’s main striker, Sergio Aguero, is being sidelined with injury.

Negredo, who joined Manchester City from Sevilla for €25m last summer, has now scored 18 goals for the Citizens in all competitions.

“I'm in a great moment and I hope to have better than this but, yes, my feelings and my game make me think this could be the best moment,” Negredo said after he netted his second hat-trick for City..

"Well we have a big squad and the team has lot of confidence to win things here.

"A game like this requires a lot of intensity and control of the game, but we know that if they want to beat us at home the other team has to play really well."

Negredo’s coach, Manuel Pellegrini, was similarly delighted with Negredo hailing his display as “complete”.

“For him to play better than he did today would not be easy because he played the complete game,” said the Chilean.

“Not only because he scored three goals, but because of his link-up play with the midfielders.

“For me, it’s not a surprise because I know the way he played in Spain for a lot of years.

“I think it’s also important for Alvaro and Edin Dzeko to play well together because maybe in other games they were not playing as well as they can do.”

With Sergio Aguero getting closer to return to the first team, can Manchester City’s strike-force be stopped this season? Have your say in the comment section below.
