However, manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that Aguero has returned to the club, trained, and has been cleared for the weekend match.

The Argentine Football Federation have confirmed that Sergio Aguero has re-joined the squad [at the team hotel] after he was rushed to hospital.

The Manchester City marksman put his country 2-nil up after 36 minutes [against Nigeria] on Tuesday but Argentina manager Jorge Sampaoli confirmed [via the federation website] that Aguero "got dizzy and had to leave at half-time." The 29-year-old was taken to hospital to undergo "routine studies [tests] as a precaution." Fortunately, Aguero was medically cleared and he was back with his teammates just hours later. This episode, follows quickly on the heels of his recent traffic accident which left Aguero with a fractured rib, and Pep Guardiola will be concerned that the in-form striker is not set for more time on the side-lines having already bagged 8 Premier League this season.

Manchester City cruised to yet another victory in a 3-1 dismantling of Arsenal to set a English football record.

The Sky Blues set the all-time English record for most points through the first 11 games of the season with 31, leading to comparisons with Arsene Wenger's Invincibles. Wenger's side today wasn't up to snuff against high-octane City, whose first goal came courtesy of Kevin De Bruyne's pinpoint strike from outside the penalty area. Things continued that way for City after the half-time break with Raheem Sterling drawing a penalty in the 50th minute. The penalty was tucked away by Sergio Aguero, who was celebrated pre-match with a guard of honor for becoming the club's all-time leading goalscorer last week. Aguero's replacement, Gabriel Jesus, added the third and final goal in the 74th, despite an assist from an offside David Silva, to put the game out of reach following an Arsenal goal.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed in his pre-match press conference that forward Sergio Aguero is fit to start.

The Argentine international has been limited over the last three weeks after sustaining a broken rib injury during Gameweek 7. However, while being in the side for the club's last three matches, including Tuesday's Champions League win against Napoli, the club's leading scorer has not started. Said manager Pep Guardiola: "The game against Stoke, he [Aguero] had done just one training session. The game against Napoli he was ready and, of course, he’s ready for tomorrow." However, it remains to be seen whether the striker will get the start with the club coming off a seven-goal performance against Stoke last weekend. A start for Aguero would mean the bench for in-form attackers Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane or Raheem Sterling after contributing a combined four goals and three assists last weekend.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero is expected to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday in Champions League.

The Argentine forward was on the bench in the club's 7-2 rout of Stoke City on Saturday, but was kept off the pitch as he recovers from a broken rib injury suffered in a car accident before Gameweek 7. However, Aguero looks set to be recalled into the starting lineup for the club's Champions League group stage match against Serie A-leading Napoli. Said manager Pep Guardiola: "Day by day he is much better, yesterday (Sunday) he made an amazing training session. The day before Stoke was good but not perfect - yesterday was really good."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that forward Sergio Aguero has a chance to play Saturday against Stoke City.

The Argentine forward was expected to miss up to four weeks after suffering a broken rib injury in a car accident in Amsterdam before the club's last match. However, Guardiola hinted that Aguero could be involved for the side with Gabriel Jesus returning from a long trip to Brazil: "Maybe [he is in contention to play against Stoke]. Today, in the last training session, we are going to see. He is not 100% but he recovered quite well. We will see. We are happy he is back in training."

Manchester City could have star forward Sergio Aguero back sooner than expected from a broken rib injury.

The club confirmed that the Argentine international is taking part in light training after resting during the international break. Aguero suffered the injury, which was expected to rule him out for two to four weeks, when his taxi was involved in a car accident in Amsterdam days before Gameweek 7. But now, Aguero is on track to return within the next two gameweeks as the club's leading goalscorer on six goals from six Premier League matches. A further update is expected this week when manager Pep Guardiola holds his weekly press conference prior to the Stoke City match.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero is set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a broken rib injury.

Recent reports suggest Aguero is set to miss two to four weeks with the injury after he was involved in a car accident in Amsterdam on his day off yesterday. While Aguero is set to miss the weekend, the international break next week could see him potentially miss only one league match depending on his recovery. In the meantime, Gabriel Jesus is expected to lead the line as a central forward. Said manager Pep Guardiola: "I don't know, I am not a doctor, I don't know exactly what he has. It was an accident. Fortunately, he will come back and recover as soon as possible...The first impression we have is he has broken the rib. Exactly how many days he will have off, I don't know right now."

At least for the next 24 hours, Manchester City is atop the Premier League table following a 6-0 win at Watford.

For the moment, Manchester City looks like the team to beat in the Premier League after its second straight blowout win, after last week's 5-0 win against Liverpool. Sergio Aguero was the clear hero on Saturday, recording a hat-trick with two goals in the first half and a stunning solo effort in the 81st minute that saw him cut past three defenders before poking a shot past Heurelho Gomes and off the post. Aguero also added an assist on Nicolas Otamendi's goal in the 63rd minute; meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus knocked home his fourth goal of the season, all in the last three games, and Raheem Sterling converted a late penalty for the sixth and final goal.

Manchester City won their seventh straight Premier League opening-day match by defeating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 on Saturday.

Manchester City were held scoreless throughout the first half as Brighton's defense held strong at the Amex Stadium. But, even with a pair of Gabriel Jesus strikes disallowed, Pep Guardiola's side would not be denied. Sergio Aguero broke the deadlock in the 70th minute as he capped off a counter attack with a crisp finish after receiving a cool first-time pass from David Silva to put him in on goal. While the Seagulls made just two mistakes, the second resulted in the Citizen's second goal. Lewis Dunk challenged G. Jesus and accidentally headed the ball past his keeper Mat Ryan. The victory was a deserved result for City having controlled the majority of chances and seen Jesus' pair of goals disallowed.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero said he is not planning on leaving the club anytime soon.

Rumors have swirled over the star forward's future at the club with Gabriel Jesus' rise and the club reportedly interested in a move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. But Aguero still scored 33 goals in 45 games for the Sky Blues last season to show he is still in prime form. "I still have two years on my contract with Manchester City," Aguero said. "I feel very happy here, so I will fulfil my contract to stay here until the end of my contract. I have not thought about where to play next. I just want to focus on the work here."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero are expected to remain with the club.

Despite the recent shakeup, including the release of five first-team players who received signficant playing time last season, the veteran duo won't be a part of the departures. However, they will face a challenge to retain their starting positions with Gabriel Jesus and John Stones pushing them for a full season. Said Guardiola: "They will be at Man City next season. They improved a lot, Vincent playing eight or nine games in a row, and we saw something special with him...But we finished 15 points behind Chelsea. Sergio helped us a lot, now we have to find him a better solution and not just depend on Sergio to score goals."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola received the only consolation in a trophy-less season with a Champions League spot after a 5-0 win at Watford.

It was an absolute blowout at Vicarage Road before the halftime whistle even sounded with the Sky Blues taking a 4-0 lead into the break with the added assurance returning to Champions League next season. Vincent Kompany opened the scoring in just the fifth minute, putting in a Kevin De Bruyne cross for the lead. De Bruyne then assisted on the next goal from Sergio Aguero for his league-leading 18th of the season. Aguero added another goal in the 36th for his 20th of the season before Gabriel Jesus got rolling, assisting on Fernandinho's 41st-minute strike before scoring his seventh for the fifth and final of the afternoon.

Manchester City's Champions League hopes were given a massive boost with the return of Sergio Aguero.

Said manager Pep Guardiola: "There are no injuries except Gundogan and Bravo. Sergio trained in the last few days and the rest are OK. Like Sergio, John Stones trained with the group the last two or three days as well." The Argentine star missed out on a 5-0 win against Crystal Palace after sustaining a groin injury in Gameweek 36. But Aguero has been cleared to return along with defender John Stones, to face Leicester City in Saturday's midday match with the club sitting just three points above fifth-place Arsenal.

The news isn't as bad as initially feared, but Sergio Aguero won't be available for Manchester City this weekend.

After a goal and assist against Middlesbrough last weekend, Aguero limped away in the final minutes with a groin injury that reports suggested could end his season. But manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that the Sky Blues hope to have him back for next weekend's match against Leicester City. Meanwhile, midfielder David Silva looks set to return this weekend after fighting off a knock picked up against Arsenal in the FA Cup. "No [Aguero is not fit]," Guardiola said. "Hopefully next one but this game no. Yesterday was the first training session [Silva completed since injury]. The action from the semi-final in the FA Cup, he is still not perfect."
