Pep Guardiola provides fresh injury update on Sergio Aguero

Aguero won’t be fit to face Liverpool – Guardiola

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Sergio Aguero won’t play any part in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Liverpool.

The Argentine has missed the past three games with a hamstring injury picked up at West Ham United and Guardiola has revealed that he has not fully recovered.

Speaking in a virtual press conference before the Reds game, he told reporters: “No, he’s not ready. Not yet.”

In the absence of Aguero, Gabriel Jesus could lead the line against Jurgen Klopp‘s side after making his injury comeback in midweek.

The Brazilian was recently sidelined with a thigh problem, but returned to action off the bench against Olympiacos on Tuesday.

In case Gabriel does not start, Ferran Torres is the likely candidate to occupy the striker’s position as he has done in the past three games.

Torres has impressed in his debut season and he has already contributed four goals and two assists from nine appearances in all competitions.
