Sergio Aguero is out for Man City
Manchester City have been hit with a serious injury blow a day before the Stoke City game.
Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya, who is well connected at Man City, has confirmed that Aguero will now be missing for two weeks.
The Argentine is out with a knee injury picked up during a training session.
The good news is that “nothing is broken”, while the timing is also pretty fortunate for the Sky Blues.
Agüero had a problem in his knee while he was training yesterday. He was tested after that and nothing is broken. He didn't train today and he is out for tomorrow and for around a couple of weeks.

Aguero to miss the Stoke City game
On Monday night Man City will return to action away at Stoke City.
When the sides met earlier in the season Man City won 7-2.
Without Aguero, Gabriel Jesus will start up front for the Sky Blues after the Brazilian has recently returned from injury.
During yesterday's training I had a discomfort on my left knee. The club's doctors told me I'll be back with the team in approximately two weeks. Now it's time for a full recovery!

Man City have almost three weeks off
After the Stoke game, Man City have almost three weeks off.
Pep Guardiola’s charges are heading to Dubai for a warm weather training camp before the players are called up for international duty.
While Aguero is now set to miss the next Argentina get-together, he could be fit for Man City having only missed the Stoke game.
Elsewhere, Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling are “much better” according to Guardiola, and should both start on Monday.
Fabian Delph is rated as 50/50 and will be assessed ahead of kick off.
Benjamin Mendy is back in training after six months out with a ACL injury.
