Manuel Pellegrini’s side took their tally to 10 goals in two seasons in home games with Spurs with Sergio Aguero the star man. The Argentine managed to score all four goals despite missing a penalty, with his virtuoso display taking him to the top of the scoring charts, level with Diego Costa.
With Aguero in such fine form, Pellegrini’s and his men will head into the CSKA game full of confidence with the Chilean manager backing his star man to get even better.
“I said that before this game,” the Chilean said. “I’m not talking because he scored four goals and I’m not expecting him to score four goals every game.
“But I know him a lot of years before he came here. I saw his career in Argentina and Spain and that’s why I said that he’s one of the most important strikers in the world.
“It’s not because he scored four goals, it’s because he has the conditions to be one of the most important and when he’s 100 per cent fit he will demonstrate every game”

While Aguero will feature in Moscow. Frank Lampard won’t. The veteran midfielder was stretchered off at the weekend and won’t be fit too travel. Samir Nasri (groin) and Eliaquim Mangala (muscle problem) are also set to miss.
City have yet to win in the group this season, losing to Bayern Munich in their opening game and drawing with Roma last time out. They will fancy their chances against a CSKA side that has yet to point up a point.
City will also have the added bonus of no away support to face with Tuesday’s match set to be played behind closed doors after CSKA were hit with a sanction by UEFA following issues of racism and crowd trouble.
CSKA warmed up for the game with a 6-0 win over Kuban Krasnodar.
