Man City: Sergio Aguero injury update
It’s looking increasingly likely that Sergio Aguero is out for Man City at Watford tonight.
Man City have set off for their Premier League clash against the Hornets.
On Monday, Pep Guardiola hinted that Sergio Aguero may miss the trip to Vicarage Road.
Aguero missed City’s last game vs Bournemouth after picking up a knock against Lyon in the Champions League.
Guardiola told the press he didn’t know if the Argentine would be fit for Tuesday.
And the Manchester Evening News have now revealed there was no sign of Aguero with the Man City squad as they headed off to Watford.
Oleksandr Zinchenko was also absent as Man City took the train down south.

Sergio Aguero vs Chelsea
Next weekend Man City take on Chelsea in the Premier League.
Will Aguero be fit for that match?
According to the Guardian, Man City fans should brace themselves for the worst.
It’s been reported that the Argentine suffered a setback in training:
Sergio Aguero suffered an abductor injury in training on Monday, ruling him out of Manchester City’s game at Watford on Tuesday night and making the striker a doubt for Saturday’s trip to Chelsea.
Will Gabriel Jesus play vs Watford?
Gabriel Jesus is likely to start for Man City in attack if Aguero is out.
Jesus started the Bournemouth match, however the Brazilian was subbed out the game after 77 minutes.
It’s been a difficult season for the 21-year-old as he’s played second fiddle to Aguero in the pecking order.
In 17 matches in all competitions, Jesus has five goals and one assist.
After Bournemouth, the Times summed up the striker’s performance as follows:
Jesus did not look like scoring all afternoon. The Brazil forward had 43 touches, fewer than any of his outfield team-mates, and too often he dropped into midfield, where City already had a mass of bodies.
Jesus is at his most dangerous when charging at defenders, so it was disappointing to see him with his back to goal so often.
