Sergio Aguero update ahead of Wolves

It has since been revealed that the Argentine has been ill with the flu for the last few days.

As a result, Aguero was unable to train, hence why he missed out vs Burton.

Luckily for City fans, Aguero is expected to start training on Thursday and should be fit for Man City’s game vs Wolves.

City head into the Wolves game four points behind 1st place, Liverpool.
