Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero feels they returned to their very best in FA Cup victory over Leeds United.

The build-up to the game had been dominated by fresh speculation over manager Roberto Mancini's position in the light of the Southampton capitulation.

But City fans made clear their support for the Italian, who is now eyeing a repeat of the 2011 FA Cup success.

Aguero said: "It was a very good game for us. We are happy with the win and reaching the next round of the FA Cup.

"We played well - from the start we gave it our all. We had spoken about having to give our all in the first 15 minutes.

"The truth is we played a great game and we hope we can continue to do so constantly."
