Manchester City will have its goalscoring superstar back from suspension for the club's weekend showdown with Liverpool.
Aguero missed the last four Premier League matches serving a ban for his second red card of the season, which came out of a brutal tackle on David Luiz in a Week 14 loss to Chelsea. But the club has fared well without its star, winning the last three after a humiliating 4-2 loss to Leicester City. Manager Pep Guardiola will surely start Aguero up top after opting for a false No. 9 in recent weeks. However, it looks like John Stones will be missing along with Leroy Sane. Said Guardiola: "Aguero is ready - he came back good from Argentina. Finally, he came back after four games ban and we are happy he is back...John is much, much better. Vincent and Leroy I think will not be available to play." Fri, Dec 30, 2016 09:54:00 AM

Manchester City were ahead at halftime but were outplayed in the second frame, as Chlesea would score three times unanswered and the Citizens made matters worse with two players sent off in the final minute of the match.

There is plenty to dissect from both teams in this one, but Manchester City's 90 minutes of effort will be overshadowed by a terrible high tackle by Sergio Aguero on David Luiz in the game's dying moments. Aguero and the rest of the club were frustrated by some non-calls by the referee during the course of the match, particularly an event where Aguero appeared to have a chance a breaking through alone on goal but Luiz made contact that brought Aguero down. City also had a sitter missed by Kevin de Bruyne and a goal disallowed from a free kick because Fernandinho was offside. Fernandinho was also sent off following the Aguero tackle for his antics in the following fray resulting from the foul. Expect to see a run of starts for Kelechi Iheanacho coming.

Manchester City overcame an early deficit and rode two goals from Sergio Aguero to a hard fought 1-2 win over Burnley.

Turf Moor has been a tough place for the opposition this season and today was no different as the Clarets looked to be aiming for an upset result with an early opening goal. Aguero got back on the score sheet with an equalizer in the 40th minute, tapping in from close range after a bit of pinball in the box. He would find the game-winner on the hour mark, as a shot by Fernandinho touched the Argentinian before going in. It could have been a hat trick were it not for a nice save from Paul Robinson. City still have question marks in defense but they are top of the table for now as the weekend plays on.

Pep Guardiola moved quickly to allay growing injury concerns after Sergio Aguero was seen limping towards the end of his sides Champions League tie in Germany on Wednesday night.

The Argentine has endured a roller coaster of a fantasy season, average weeks interspersed by the odd double figure return, but generally we’re not getting much bang for our buck. His red-hot start to the campaign was quickly cooled following a retrospective ban for violent conduct [elbow on Winston Reid], and only two game weeks since have returned over 6 FPL points. So, for the many fantasy managers who have hanging around in the corridor of uncertainty, last night’s injury could’ve been the catalyst help pull the trigger. But the bad [or good] news depending on your standpoint is that Aguero will be fine for the early kick off at Turf Moor according to Pep Guardiola: "Yeah, maybe he had a kick – but he is okay."

Manchester City is unlikely to remain top of the table by the end of the weekend after drawing Middlesbrough 1-1.

The club looked set for a letdown with a home meeting against Middelsbrough after Tuesday emotional 3-1 comeback victory against Barcelona in Champions League. Sergio Aguero finally put the Sky Blues ahead in the 43rd minute after the club took 19 shots in the first half to put him even with Diego Costa on the goalscoring list with eight. But the club couldn't close out Middlesbrough, who had no shots at halftime, as the Teessiders got a 91st-minute equalizer from a Marten de Roon header to steal an away point against the title favorites.

Sergio Aguero returned to the prolific scorer we have come to expect from the Argentina star with two goals in a 4-0 win against West Brom,

The forward had gone goalless in his last three Premier League matches entering Saturday, but that all changed at the Hawthorns in the first half-hour. Aguero forged a formidable partnership with midfielder Ilkay Gundogan with Aguero taking a pass from the summer arrival and slotting it past Ben Foster for the first goal. He then doubled his total with a beautiful curling shot from outside the penalty area in the 28th minute to make it 2-0 heading into the half. Then it was Gundogan's chance to take over, finishing off a perfect chip-pass from Aguero in the box in the 79th minute. Then Aguero started another break by releasing Kevin De Bruyne, who found Gundogan trailing down the center of the box for the fourth and final goal.

Sergio Aguero came through 90 minutes of international football on Tuesday although the diminutive striker had a night to forget.

After Aguero limped out of a training ground practice match on Sunday due to "pain in his calf," it was anticipated that the Manchester City hitman would miss the World Cup Qualifier against Paraguay. But, after declaring himself fit for the clash, Kun was named in a strong looking line-up which had been expected to sweep their South American counterparts aside. However, the World Cup qualifying group has been blown wide open following the surprise 1-0 loss on home soil. Finding themselves a goal down after 18 minutes, Aguero had the chance to level the scores early in the second, but fluffed his lines and missed the crucial spot-kick. La Albiceleste currently occupy a play-off place in the group but face leaders Brazil while Chile and Paraguay will leapfrog them with wins in the next round.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero declared himself fit after reports in Argentina claimed he suffered another injury.

The Manchester City star told Argentine media that he suffered fatigue in his calf after overcompensating due to a previous groin injury that kept him sidelined, along with a ban for violent conduct, at the end of August. The forward was taken off in Argentina's World Cup qualifier against Peru on Thursday due to calf tightness, but Aguero claims he is ready to suit up for the national team against Paraguay tonight: "For now I feel good physically, within five minutes of the second half against Peru I began to feel the tiredness on the calf, [the coach] noticed and took me out. But I'm quite well now: you get physical fitness playing, not training. [Coach Edgardo] Bauza has the decision - I'll be available for Tuesday."

A training ground calf injury looks set to keep Sergio Aguero out of Argentina’s upcoming World Cup Qualifier against Paraguay.

Reports from Spanish newspaper Marca say the Manchester City striker pulled up during a training ground practice match due to pain in his left calf. Aguero then spent time with the medical staff, although there have been no updates as to the severity of the problem. If Aguero is ruled out of GW8, then his absence will hand club teammate Kelechi Iheanacho another opportunity to demonstrate his talent having proved himself to be an able replacement in recent times [2-goals and two assists from his two starts] during the Argentine's early season suspension.

Sergio Aguero returned in fine form after a three-match ban, as he scored twice in Manchester City's 3-1 win over Swansea City.

Aguero once again proved why he is one of the best strikers in the Premier League. The Argentine opened the scoring against Swansea with a superb strike in the 9th minute and added a second with a composed spot kick in the 65th. The victory was then sealed in the 77th minute when Raheem Sterling scored after a well worked counter-attack. Aguero has now scored five in four matches, while Manchester City remain atop the table and unbeaten this season.

Sergio Aguero has been handed a three-game ban after his violent conduct charge was found proven.

Andre Marriner missed the incident on Sunday, but an FA panel charged Aguero after reviewing video footage of the incident involving Winston Reid. The Argentine appeared to throw an elbow in the face of the West Ham defender although City denied the imputation and submitted further that, if he was to be found proven, the standard punishment would be clearly excessive. However, an Independent Regulatory Commission rejected these claims and his ban will stand with immediate effect. Aguero will miss the Manchester derby in game week four as well as the meeting with Bournemouth, but he will return in September to face Swansea as his final game will be served in the EFL Cup. Aguero is available for the Champions League tie versus Monchengladbach on September 13.

Manchester City has officially submitted an appeal to contest the FA's charge of violent conduct against Sergio Aguero.

The incident in question concerns an elbow that the forward appeared to throw at West Ham defender Winston Reid in the club's 3-1 win against the Hammers on Sunday. An FA board deemed the action worthy of a red card and gave Aguero until Thursday evening to respond to the charge, which would likely carry a three-match retroactive ban. However, the Sky Blues are hoping to have Aguero available for the Manchester derby on September 10 as he sits out the international break with a minor calf injury.

The FA has officially charged Sergio Aguero with violent conduct stemming from the elbow to Winston Reid in Manchester City's Week 3 win over West Ham. Aguero has until Wednesday to answer the charge or be suspended for three matches.

Aguero will, in all likelihood be charged and miss the next three matches including the Manchester Derby a week from Saturday. The rest will probably do him good given the calf injury he picked up on top of his third consecutive summer playing in a major tournament final. This is the worry with Aguero this season. His quality isn't in doubt but he's small and he's been going non-stop for three years. A breakdown could be coming and center forward is the one spot City don't seem to be well-stocked in.

Sergio Aguero is facing the prospect of a ban although his enforced spell on the sidelines could not have been timed better after picking up an injury.

The Argentine was at the centre of a media storm on Sunday when cameras at the Etihad spotted Aguero thrusting an elbow in the face of West Ham defender Winston Reid. The incident, which was missed by referee Andre Marriner, carries an automatic three-game suspension and an FA review panel will analyse video footage today before deciding on whether to charge the City striker with violent conduct. However, the news that Aguero picked up a calf injury during the same game may help to soften the blow. The Argentina FA confirmed on Monday that the 28-year-old had withdrawn from the upcoming World Cup qualifying matches against Uruguay and Venezuela. Aguero will undergo further tests to determine the severity of the problem.

Rightfully so, Sergio Aguero took home the Barclays Player of the Month award for April after scoring seven goals in five league matches.

The award was Aguero's fourth of his career as the Argentine international scored in all five Premier League matches in April, including a hat-trick against Chelsea. Aguero and his 24 goals are tied with Jamie Vardy and is currently chasing down Harry Kane for the Golden Boot, which will be settled this weekend. With that in mind, Aguero is sure to start despite his heavy workload (he played at least 60 minutes in eight matches since April 1), not to mention all the Sky Blues have to do this weekend is draw with Swansea to guarantee a top-four finish and Champions League berth.
