Bony: We will work hard to stay top.

Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony is willing to defeat Aston Villa in order to remain at the top of the Premier League table.

Manuel Pellegrini's City face the Claret and Blue side this weekend and will be looking to secure three points.

The Citizens - who have been in good form recently - qualified for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League in midweek after beating Spanish side Sevilla by three goals to one.

"We are going there to win - we want to remain at the top of the table and we will work hard to stay there," Bony said, reports

"We know they have a new manager and will be keen to impress and that it is not going to be easy, but I think it's important we don't think about them too much or their position in the table - we just need to concentrate on ourselves."

Bony also spoke on how the progress made on the injury front will affect the City side. Manchester city's official website can confirm that David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri and Pablo Zabaleta are all making good progress.

He said: "A few of our injured players are coming back which is really good but we want everyone back, though it's not always possible to have every player fit - that is football.

"We have to do give our maximum with the players we do have and try to win this game so that when those who are missing at the moment come back, they come back into a team that has kept winning and still lead the table.

"We gave a great performance against Sevilla and we want to do the same again when we play Aston Villa - I think it will be a different sort of game, but one we need to come away with three points from."
