Man City boss Pep Guardiola gives worrying injury news on Sergio Aguero after Chelsea win

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said Sergio Aguero’s injury doesn’t look good after the match with Chelsea.

City defeated the Blues 2-1 at the Etihad to pip Frank Lamaprd’s in-form side to third place and remain nine points behind leaders Liverpool.

However, Guardiola’s injury crisis continued as Aguero limped out after 77 minutes with what appears to be a muscular injury.

The Spaniard claimed that there will be no news until Sunday but early indications don’t look promising.

Guardiola said after the match: ”Hopefully we’ll know tomorrow, but the first indication is not good. A muscular injury.”

This comes as a significant blow for City as Aguero is their top scorer in the Premier League with nine goals in 11 appearances.

The Argentina international played a big part in the back-to-back champions’ impressive victory against Chelsea, even though he didn’t find the target.

The Blues opened the scoring after 21 minutes with N’Golo Kante following a brilliant cross by Mateo Kovacic.

But Kevin De Bruyne equalised after just eight minutes after the ball took a small deflection on Jorginho.

Riyad Mahrez turned things around shortly before half-time thanks to a brilliant run from the right wing.

But despite losing Aguero, Guardiola remains confident that his team will fight back and knock Liverpool off the top of the table.

He added: “We came back.

“You can approach thinking we’re going 12 points off, or nine points if it’s a good game, always the press conferences before the game it’s about ‘things are going bad’ or ‘we are going to lose the Premier League’. Ok, we are going to lose the Premier League.

“I know what happens in the Premier League after a team wins, what happens the next year. I know what has happened in the last 10 years. And we won it again. And today, there is a team who is almost unstoppable.

“There has been just one draw. Without that you have a good chance. In any game, do we give up? We fought, we fought, and we fought today. The others are better, and they play better, so of course we can lose.

“But it’s always like this – what happens if it goes bad. There will be sunshine tomorrow, well not in Manchester…

“You can always think the players will show you, you can encourage them that they will make it 1-1 and we could have scored more goals.

“When we play like today or like Liverpool, playing teams with quality, you are going to suffer.”
