Sergio Aguero has vowed that the Blues will bounce back from their Champions League upset when they face Chelsea on Sunday.
According to The Mirror, the Argentina striker believes he and his teammates will retain the Premier League title come May.
“Aguero has come out fighting after City were dumped out of Europe’s elite competition at the group stage for the second successive season without managing a single win,” writes the paper’s David Anderson.
“And the striker has pointed to last season when they recovered from their premature exit to win the Premier League.
“The Blues are top of the table after clocking up an 18-game unbeaten run in the league and Aguero is adamant they will still be there come the final day on May 19.”
“Chelsea and their fans are still reeling from Roman Abramovich replacing Roberto Di Matteo with Rafa Benitez as interim boss and Zabaleta claims City must seize this opportunity,” David Anderson continues.
“The Blues defender has already moved on from City’s embarrassing Champions League exit and is focused on continuing their proud 18-game unbeaten league run at Stamford Bridge in Benitez’s first game in charge.”
Elsewhere this morning, The Sun carry an exclusive story claiming the Blues have made a £15million move for Crystal Palace sensation Wilfried Zaha.
“The Premier League champions are offering £12m up front - plus another £3m in add-ons - for the England new-boy and they are happy for him to remain on loan at Selhurst Park until the summer,” writes Martin Blackburn.
“City are determined to beat a host of other sides to land the prized signature of Zaha, who made his international debut against Sweden a week ago, in January.
“Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are also in the hunt for the Ivory Coast-born player.
“The total cost of Zaha’s transfer could be £15m but boss Roberto Mancini believes the player should be able to complete the season with the Championship promotion-chasers.”
