Sergio Aguero given 4 match ban for Luiz tackle


Argetine banned for City

Manchester City star Sergio Aguero has received a 4 match ban for his tackle on Chelsea’s David Luiz.

Aguero lost his head late on in the game as City lost 3-1 to Chelsea at home, in a game that could prove vital in the upcoming months of title race.

He will miss City’s games against Leicester, Watford, Arsenal and Hull.

City’s Fernandinho was also sent off after he clashed with Cesc Fabregas in the scuffle that followed Aguero’s lunge, and the midfielder will serve a three-match ban.

City defender John Stones said the referee’s decision not to punish any Chelsea players was unfair.

“In those situations you go in there and back your team-mates up, both teams do that,” he told BBC Sport.

“I don’t want to say too much and get in trouble for saying things but I think we have ended up on the bad side of what happened.

“I know Sergio’s tackle was in no way good, but what happened after – when a few of their boys came in – I didn’t think it was fairly balanced.”
