Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero is vowing to battle until the bitter end to win this season's Premier League title.
City are in danger of missing out on their first top-flight championship since 1968 after struggling to reproduce their best form in recent weeks.
Roberto Mancini's men were seven points clear of rivals Manchester United at one stage, but now find themselves trailing the reigning champions by three points after their 1-0 victory over Fulham on Monday evening.
With eight games remaining, Aguero is refusing to write off the team's chances of glory, although he knows they can ill afford many more slip-ups before their showdown with United at the Etihad Stadium at the end of April.
The Argentina forward missed Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke City with a sore foot but he is hopeful of returning to action against Sunderland this weekend and with a message for the doubters who already think the race is over.
Aguero told the club's official website: "Why wait until next season if we can win it now?"
"I can promise you that we'll be fighting until the very end. We all want to make it and though it won't be easy, we believe we can win the Premier League this season.
"Winning titles is about never giving up and we will never give up. I want to win it this season and then many more with City after that."
On a personal level, Aguero is enjoying every minute of his first season in England, having bagged 17 goals in 27 League appearances since making the move last summer from Atletico Madrid.
The 23-year-old added: "I was able to adapt quickly to the team and to the Premier League. That was all due to my team-mates, the club and especially the fans.
"As for moving to England, my family and I feel we've adapted really well to living in Manchester and we haven't been here for too long, either.
"The staff of the club and my team-mates have been very supportive, especially [compatriot] Pablo Zabaleta, who been here for quite a while.
"Everyone has made us feel like home. We still would like to know the city better and maybe visit the outskirts more, but we don't have too much free time on our hands.
"But from what we've seen, we find it quite nice. We feel at home here."
