Man City fear another Aguero injury layoff
Sergio Aguero has only recently returned to first team action for Manchester City but the young Argentine could once again be facing some time on the sidelines after limping off and being substituted early in the Citizens 1-5 thrashing of Tottenham on Wednesday night.
Following their last major victory over a North London club was when Aguero last limped off the pitch with an injury. On that day the Citizens and Arsenal fought to a nine goal 6-3 thriller in favor of the Sky Blues.
Although the blue side of Manchester have done just fine with Aguero on the sidelines once this campaign, they will not want to see their star 25-year-old missing for too long.
With only 25 appearances this season across all competitions he already has scored 26 goals, only four shy of his best haul of 30 in 2011-12 which was achieved in 48 showings, proving just how important his scoring has been this season.
Following the match, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini made comment as to not knowing the full extent of the injury just yet according to BT:
"We will see with the doctor what happened with Sergio.
It's possible it was a consequence of him playing 90 minutes [against Watford in the FA Cup at the weekend].
We hope we can recover him as soon as possible."
Physio Room has listed the injury as a possible hamstring problem and if that is so it could take at least four to six weeks for Aguero to return.
The club will be in luck that Alvaro Negredo is set to return to action and should help to curtain some of the loss of Aguero but the little Argentine is certain to be sorely missed if gone for a substantial part of the impending run-in and battle for City to win their second title in three years.
