Aguero to Miss Manchester Derby, Pep Confirms



Sergio Aguero will sit out the Manchester derby at Etihad Stadium on December 7 though injury, Pep Guardiola has confirmed.

The Argentina international limped off the pitch during City's 2-1 home win over Chelsea on Saturday with a suspected muscular injury .

Aguero is City's leading scorer in the Premier League this season, with nine to his name from 12 outings.

It has been feared that the 31-year-old could now face an extended spell on the sidelines, as City approach a hectic festive period which could have a huge bearing on this season's title race.

When asked if Aguero will miss a crucial clash with Manchester United next month, Guardiola responded: "Yes."

He added on how long the Argentine is likely to be sidelined: "A few games. I don’t know exactly.

"He has a tendon problem and will be a few games out. We will miss Sergio.

"We have had some problems with injuries but we will wait for him and meantime we have Gabriel [Jesus] and [Raheem] Sterling who can play in that position.

"We have no other injuries. David Silva had cramp but he’s okay."
