After scoring what turned out to be the winning goal in the FA Cup semifinal against Chelsea, the Argentina international is determined to lift the trophy against Wigan in May

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero insists the club needs to be picking up some form of silverware every season.

Roberto Mancini's side booked its place in the FA Cup final with a 2-1 win over Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday, with the Argentina international netting a looping header past Petr Cech to secure his side's progression.

After failing to defend its Premier League crown this term, Aguero says it is important for the club to not end up empty-handed at the end of the season.

"It is always important to win something. Obviously we are slightly away from the Premier League and we know that we could have done better," he told the the club's official website. 

"But if we can win a trophy once a year it is very important and that's what we will try to do.

"Of course we have a good team. We must continue the way we are doing, so we can try and win the FA Cup and continue to go forward in the Premier League. That's what we are trying to achieve."

Chelsea gave Mancini's men a scare with a late rally despite enduring a congested fixture schedule, and Aguero believes the extra games could have actually benefited the opposition.

He continued: "To be honest, sometimes the more games you play the better it is because you keep the intensity levels quite high.

"Sometimes it goes against you, and obviously the pitch was quite large so therefore there was tiredness there in the end."

City now turns its attention to facing Wigan in the Premier League on Wednesday in what is a dress rehearsal for next month's FA Cup final.

"It is another important game for us, and if we continue the way we are we will win," Aguero added.
