Injury update on Sergio Aguero before Manchester derby

Manchester City will be looking to win the 2017-18 Premier League title in front of our travelling fans when they host us in the derby on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s side are coming off the back of a 3-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday, and have the second leg coming up on Tuesday to think about.

Sergio Aguero missed the midweek clash having been out for a month with a knee injury now – his last game being their 1-0 win over Chelsea at the beginning of March.

There has been talk that the Argentine striker could make his return on Saturday and Pep Guardiola has today given an update on City’s all-time top scorer at his pre-match press conference.

Guardiola told the media that Aguero will be assessed by the club’s medical staff before making a late decision on whether he can face us or not tomorrow.

The Manchester City boss said:

“I don’t know right now [whether he will play]. We have training this afternoon and we are going to see his physical condition.”

With seven games remaining heading into the weekend, Manchester City would become the first team in Premier League history to win the title with six games to spare should they beat us.
