Man City ace Sergio Aguero set to miss Liverpool clash after latest injury blow

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is a major doubt for their Premier League showdown with Liverpool in less than two weeks after he picked up a thigh injury in the 1-1 draw with West Ham on Saturday.

The Argentine hitman had only returned to the side the previous week having not played since June because of a knee injury.

And he lasted just 45 minutes at the London Stadium with Raheem Sterling moving into the lead striker position.

City's fixture list before the November international break sees them face Marseille, Sheffield United, Olympiakos and Liverpool.

And City's first game back is a trip to London to face Tottenham.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday night's clash with Marseille, City boss Pep Guardiola confirmed Aguero and Benjamin Mendy will be out for at least two weeks.

"It will be two or three weeks, Sergio (Aguero) and (Benjamin) Mendy as well," Guardiola said.

"Sergio was injured in the last game, muscular. When you are out for four or five months with a knee problem you always have a risk when you come back.

"We tried to handle it as much as possible, just 50-55 minutes every game.

"But it was not possible. It depends on the injury.

"We expect 10-15 days for sure minimum, or it could be three weeks or a month."

Aguero and Mendy join an injury list which includes Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Nathan Ake.
