Manchester City`s top scorer Sergio Aguero will be fit for his side`s Premier League title decider at home to West Ham United on Sunday, manager Manuel Pellegrini revealed on Friday.

"The whole squad is fit for Sunday," Pellegrini told a press conference. "It is very important, always for a manager, if you have your whole squad and choose from all your players."

Aguero, who scored the dramatic injury-time goal against Queens Park Rangers that gave City the title on the season`s final day in 2012, had been a doubt due to a groin problem.

The 28-year-old Argentine striker, who has scored 28 times in all competitions, limped off in the first half of his side`s 3-2 win at Everton last weekend and sat out the 4-0 home win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

City effectively need a point against West Ham to secure the title, because although they lead second-place Liverpool by only two points, they have a goal difference advantage of 13 goals.

"It is a very important weekend because it is the last game," Pellegrini added.

"It is the work from the whole year that we play for, but also it is a normal game because I think the best way to do it is to repeat what we have done all season so far."

The Chilean, who stands to become the first non-European manager to win an English top-flight title, says that his players do not intend to settle for a draw.

"Every team must play every game to win," he said. "It doesn`t matter in which conditions they are playing. Every team must want to win."
