Aguero doubtful for Liverpool game with thigh injury


Aguero doubtful for Liverpool game with thigh injury

Sergio Aguero is a doubt for Manchester City's Premier League clash against Liverpool on Nov 8 due to a thigh injury.

Pep Guardiola revealed on Monday (Oct 26) that he expects Aguero, who was substituted at half-time during Saturday's 1-1 draw at West Ham United, to be out for a minimum of two weeks, with Man City set to take on champions Liverpool at the Etihad in 13 days' time,

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's Champions League game against Marseille, Guardiola confirmed: "It will be two or three weeks, Sergio (Aguero) and (Benjamin) Mendy as well.

"Sergio was injured in the last game, muscular. When you are out for four or five months with a knee problem you always have a risk when you come back.

"We tried to handle it as much as possible, just 50-55 minutes every game. But it was not possible. It depends on the injury. We expect 10-15 days for sure minimum, or it could be three weeks or a month."

Aguero joins Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Benjamin Mendy, Nathan Ake and Fernandinho on the sidelines.

The positive news for City is that defender Aymeric Laporte was fit enough to travel to France after a knock.
