Man City fears long Aguero absence ahead of crucial games

Man City fears long Aguero absence ahead of crucial games

Guardiola fears Aguero could be benched for the rest of the season

The Manchester City striker suffered a knee injury and was substituted minutes before half time.

Aguero played the last 10mins against Arsenal last Wednesday after struggling with the problem before the restart of the season.

City’s all-time leading scorer already appeared in discomfort after a challenge from Ben Lee that resulted in the penalty from which City scored their second goal.

The 32-year old will go for tests on Tuesday but the City boss confirms he will miss the next few games but is worried that he might miss the rest of the season.

“It doesn’t look good. We will see tomorrow exactly what he has but it doesn’t look good for the season,” Guardiola said in his virtual post-match press conference.

“He was struggling the last month with a problem in his knee and now he felt something but it doesn’t look good.

“The doctor says it will take time. A few games [out] for sure but maybe tomorrow the tests he will get good news. We will see.”

Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez scored twice for City whereas Sane entered as a 79th-minute substitute for his first game after an injury-hit season.
