Sport One week after the comeback: Aguero injured again
Aguero returns for Man City as Partey makes Arsenal bench
Manchester City have called upon all-time record goalscorer Sergio Aguero as they look to return to winning ways against Arsenal.Aguero has not featured since suffering a meniscus injury against Burnley in June and will lead a City attack also featuring Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez, with Gabriel Jesus remaining sidelined.
At West Ham United, Manchester City dropped points for the third time in the still young Premier League season. Perhaps even more annoying for Pep Guardiola: striker Sergio Aguero has injured himself again.
After almost four months of injury, Aguero celebrated his comeback in the 1-0 win against Arsenal last Saturday, and was also in the starting line-up in the 3-1 win against FC Porto - and scored his 40th Champions League goal.
The Argentinean had to stay in the dressing room after a weak first half on Saturday when he struck at the London Stadium. After the game, Guardiola confirmed that the 32-year-old sustained a muscular injury in his thigh. More detailed investigations will provide information on the severity of the injury on Sunday.
Should Aguero be out again for a longer period of time, that would be bad news for ManCity, especially because Gabriel Jesus, the other center forward in the squad, is also injured at the moment.
City will play in the Champions League at Olympique Marseille on Tuesday, and Sheffield United will come to Manchester on Saturday. After five games, the runner-up has only eight points - Guardiola has never had such a bad start to the season with a team.
Pep Guardiola set to go a MONTH without Sergio Aguero due to injury .
Manchester City arrived in Marseille on Monday with no striker and the gloomy forecast that Sergio Aguero could miss a month due to injury Pep Guardiola will again rely on false nines. He wanted a third senior striker signed in the summer but conceded that City could not afford one.They have been at odds with the treatment table since, the City manager revealing that the Premier League is suffering almost 50 per cent more muscle injuries than this time last year. Knowing their rivals are also suffering will be scant consolation for a team fighting to locate form and rhythm.
