The good news for Manchester City was that Sergio Aguero scored on his return from injury, the bad was everything else as the Sky Blues got shredded at home by Liverpool in a 1-4 loss.
City desperately missed the center back partnership of Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi today, though the latter was available on the bench as Manuel Pellegrini rested him after 180 minutes of international play in South America. What you got instead was a pairing of Eliaquim Mangala and Martin Demichelis as the former was quickly made a fool on an own goal. Joe Hart did what he could, saving four times on 1 v 1 situations, but Liverpool kept the pressure all game and were ahead by three before Aguero found the net on his return. The four goals conceded at The Etihad had only been done once before as City miss their chance to go back on top of the table. Nov 21 - 2:37 PM

Fantasy managers everywhere will be greeted by the news that Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero is fully fit to return from a hamstring injury to face Liverpool in Week 13.

The star forward has missed nearly six weeks after suffering the injury during the last international break with Argentina. While he hoped to be fit to face Brazil in last week's World Cup qualifier, his return doesn't come too long after while sitting out the last four Premier League matches—Aguero's last appearances was his five-goal outburst against Newcastle in Week 8. His return comes at a convenient time for the club as back-up forward Wilfried Bony has been ruled out for the weekend.

The return of Sergio Aguero may be closer than you think as the Argentine international said he is in line to face Liverpool in Week 13 as he takes the international break to recover from a hamstring injury.

Aguero has missed the last month after scoring five goals in the first hour of the 6-1 win against Newcastle. Besides a 5-1 win against Bournemouth the following week, City has struggled to cope without Aguero, settling for two 0-0 draws in the past three matches. It is unlikely Aguero will start in his first game back, but an injury to Wilfried Bony makes it more likely he returns to the lineup sooner than expected.
Nov 10 - 6:26 PM

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said the club's injury list remains the same ahead of Wednesday's League Cup match against Crystal Palace.

Pellegrini said forward Sergio Aguero is progressing in his recovery from a hamstring injury, but still needs ample time to return at full strength. Meanwhile, Fabian Delph, Gael Clichy, David Silva and Samir Nasri all remain sidelined as Pellegrini hinted that he will give some of the club's youth players a crack at the first team against Crystal Palace at the Etihad in the League Cup Round of 16.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed fantasy owners fears that Aguero would miss significant time, with a hamstring injury ruling him out for at least a month.

The manager did not sound optimistic Aguero would be able to return until at least after the next international break: "Sergio has a muscle injury – it’s an important injury so I don’t think he will be back before one month." Injuries hit the club hard during the international break, but Pellegrini expressed confidence in the club's depth, saying he will rely upon Wilfried Bony and Kelechi Iheanacho to fill in for Aguero at the top of the City formation.

Tests by the AFA – Argentine Football Association – have revealed that Sergio Aguero suffered "a grade-two muscle tear," against Chile and the City striker is set for an extended spell on the sidelines.

An optimistic Aguero told TyC Sports "I think I’ll be a month without playing. I’ll go the national team compound to carry on with treatment. To recover from the tear I’ll surely need a month, although it will depend how it evolves." Given the amount of fibre damage recovery can take up-to eight weeks and given his history it would come as no surprise to see Aguero slip on that timeline and return in game week thirteen against Liverpool. City were dealt a further blow on Friday with the news that David Silva will be out for between 2-3 weeks after damaging ankle ligaments while Pellegrini is now sweating on the fitness of Vincent Kompany as Marc Wilmots is prepared to risk the skipper for the upcoming international.

Manchester City are sweating on the fitness of their star striker Sergio Aguero after the Argentine was stretchered off during the World Cup qualifying defeat to Chile.

Argentina kicked off their road to Russia – 2018 World Cup Finals – at home to South American rivals Chile in Buenos Aires but the hosts were disappointing - losing two nil – while the early departure of Aguero only served to compound matters. After a lacklustre start to his domestic campaign Aguero looked poised to kick on following a sensational display against Newcastle but the sight of Kun clutching his hamstring as he chased down a long ball is likely stop the striker in his tracks. With another qualifying match [Paraguay] - plus the loss of Messi - and important fixtures in the Premier League [Manchester derby] and Champions League [Sevilla] coming up his absence will be a major blow. Aguero will need a scan to determine the full extent of the damage but judging by the players’ post-match reaction he could be set for a number of weeks on the sidelines.

Man City shake off their recent malaise in style and Sergio Aguero makes up for lost time…

Until a few minutes before half-time it looked like another rung of City’s ladder had snapped. But Sergio Aguero’s burst of goals restored something like normal service, following two poor defeats – three if you include the CL – and at last kicked Aguero’s season into gear. Aguero’s first was his 80th in 128 PL matches – a mark only Alan Shearer and Ruud van Nistelrooy reached quicker – and he remains the key to City’s ambitions this season. Raheem Sterling failed to appear for the second half on Saturday and will be envious of the instant impact that Kevin de Bruyne has had. Bruyne looks the finished article – and to be fair has three years on Sterling – but of Aguero’s supporting trio of forwards, looks the pick. Including David Silva at the moment. Praise indeed.
Oct 5 - 8:59 AM

After a slow start to league play this season, Sergio Aguero finally rewarded patient fantasy owners in a big way, scoring five goals as Manchester City rolled Newcastle United, 6-1.

They say form is temporary but class is permanent in the world of professional football, and Aguero certainly reinforced that notion today. After having notched just once in league play all season before today, he went nothing short of berserk by scoring all five goals between the 42' and 62' minute, and City even managed to sandwich in a 6th by Kevin de Bruyne to spread the wealth a bit. After Alexis Sanchez finally broke through last weekend with a hat trick, it appears the cream of the Premier League is finally rising to the top. De Bryune and David Silva had a pair of assists apiece as well, so if you had two or more of these prospects in your XI this week, prepare for a nice bump in rank or a solid win in your H2H draft leagues. With a home game again next week, expect investment in the City attack to start selling like hotcakes.

Manchester City enjoyed the large majority of the possession and advantages in shots and shots on target but clinical Juve prevailed 2-1 at the Etihad in Champions League group stage action on Tuesday.

Juventus had only 41% of the possession and managed only three shots on target but they found the back of the net with two of them and Manchester City once again failed to translate Premier League excellence into Champions League results. Given the depth in quality on the squad the absence of Sergio Aguero until the 83rd minute can't be seen as a legitimate excuse. Manuel Pellegrini felt comfortable leaving Kevin De Bruyne on the bench. City will still likely make it out of the group stages after falling to last season's runners up but the setback certainly puts a damper on their early undefeated run in the Premier League. Losing Vincent Kompany to a calf issue for an indeterminate amount of time heaps additional misery on the day.

Sergio Aguero wasn't fit enough to start for Manchester City against Juventus on Tuesday but he did make the bench meaning he is unlikely to miss significant Premier League action if any.

After coming off in the 25th minute against Crystal Palace on Saturday as the result of a Scott Dann tackle, Aguero's status for Tuesday and beyond was uncertain at best. His presence on the bench on Tuesday doesn't guarantee he won't be eased back into the line-up but it isn't a bad bet that he'll be back in the starting line-up for Week 6. If you had a priority claim in for Wilfried Bony then you might want to rethink his value in the wake of this news.

Manchester City are sweating the fitness of Sergio Aguero ahead of Tuesdays’ UEFA Champions League game versus Juventus after the striker limped out of todays’ top of table clash at Selhurst Park.

Aguero was on the receiving end of a rash Scott Dann tackle which caught the Argentine on the knee "Sergio couldn’t move the leg. I thought it was directly a red card but the referee thought otherwise. I hope he can recover in the next 48 hours," revealed Pellegrini. However there was better news on Sterling who missed out in GW5 due to injury "Raheem has a problem with his hamstring so I think it was a risk for him to play today. I hope he is 100% fit for Tuesday." David Silva [ankle] is rated as touch and go for the game at the Etihad.

Premier League enthusiasts and fantasy managers everywhere await news of the severity of the lower body injury incurred in Manchester City's win at Selhurst Park today.

Aguero was met with a harsh tackle by Scott Dann early in the contest, and initial speculation is that he got it worst in the knee. He was seen leaving Selhurst Park on his own power, no crutches, but we will have to wait for a proper diagnosis of injury before even beginning speculation on a timetable. Stay tuned for updates.

Manchester City completely dominated Chelsea at The Etihad today, winning 3-0.

The score perfectly describes the match today and it could have been much worse. The Blues couldn't get anything and were threatened as early as 30 seconds into the match when Sergio Aguero found himself 1v1 with the goalkeeper and missed. After a series of fantastic saves by Asmir Begovic, Aguero finally found the back of the net around the half hour mark. Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho scored the next two goals late in the game, but there wasn't much doubt about Manchester City winning this one as they were in control the entire match. Chelsea have a lot to fix by next weekend, while City seem to be on cruise-control at the moment.

Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that his South American contingent – Sergio Aguero / Martin Demichelis / Pablo Zabaleta / Fernandinho – look set to miss the opening weekend of the new PL season following their involvement in this summers’ Copa America tournament.

Having played until July – Argentina were beaten finalists – Pellegrini is keen to give his players around a month off ahead of a tough Premier League campaign which means none are expected to return to training until later this week. The quartet could be ready within a fortnight with Chelsea the target at the Etihad [GW2] although starting may be out of the question. City have already been rocked by the news that new signing Fabian Delph – hamstring – is out of the opener, however Yaya Toure will be fine after he returned to Manchester as a precaution – suspected concussion - following a collision with goalkeeper Keylor Navas during Fridays' friendly defeat at the hands of Real Madrid.
