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. Oct 12 - 6:18 AM

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.

Sergio Aguero scored his 100th Premier League goal, albeit a dubious one, but Manchester City would concede an equalizer and settle for a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

Coming off the heels of a convincing win against Chelsea in which Aguero grabbed a hat trick, it looked to be a repeat performance against the Magpies this evening as City were on the front foot early and found the opener just 14 minutes into the match. However, the goal should not have been allowed as Aguero was clearly in an offside position when Aleksandar Kolarov delivered a free kick into the area and the Argentine superstar headed it home. Aguero nearly had a chance for a second when he went down in the box on 50 minutes but the referee did not grant a penalty. The attack became less potent as the match went on and City were unable to find a winner against an inspired Newcastle side. Regardless, it has been a rousing success of a fantasy double gameweek for Aguero owners, especially for those that gave him the armband, as Kun delivered four goals in the round.

Sergio Aguero was incredible against Chelsea today - single-handedly winning the match by scoring three goals.

Aguero is one of the best players in the Premier League and is always a threat to score, but today was certainly his day as he destroyed Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Aguero's second goal was the most impressive, as he expertly beat the offside trap to get a one on one against Courtois. He finished off the hat-trick with a penalty kick late in the match.

Manuel Pellegrini insists there is no chance that Sergio Aguero will miss Tuesdays’ Champions league clash with Paris Saint-Germain after he limped off against West Brom on Saturday evening.

Aguero was caught late in the game around the ankle / Achilles and while undoubtedly painful, the Argentine is not in danger of missing any minutes. "Kun had just a kick - it’s not a problem for Tuesday," confirmed the Chilean boss post-match. Pellegrini also revealed that David Silva "will not have any problems" for PSG after sitting out of yesterdays’ match due to an ongoing ankle issue. There was more good news for City as Samir Nasri came through 90 minutes unscathed in his first Premier league start since September. Meanwhile, Fabian Delph and Yaya Toure were able to step up their fitness against the Baggies. Vincent Kompany will be assessed on Monday – the skipper has a chance of returning for the second-leg tie.

Sergio Aguero scored from the spot for City's first and assist on the winner but the headline is the Argentine's health as he limped through the closing stages.

The knock that Aguero picked up was hardly catastrophic and he wasn't removed immediately from the pitch. That said, with a Champions League replay against PSG looming on Tuesday with the tie even at 2 apiece, City will need their talisman at his best if they hope to advance. Beyond Tuesday, City gained ground on Arsenal today in the race for third but can't afford to be without Aguero down the stretch if they want to secure Champions League football again for next season.

Manchester City used four second-half goals to roll past bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa at the Etihad to keep its hold on a top-four place with West Ham pressuring.

Aston Villa held City goalless in the first 45 minutes, but that didn't last long after Yaya Toure, who returned to start after missing the midweek match with a foot injury, connected on a pass from David Silva for the first goal of the afternoon. Two minutes later, Sergio Aguero capitalized on a poor clearance by former City teammate Micah Richards for his first Premier League goal since Week 24. Aguero doubled his tally after a beautiful one-two sequence with Silva, his second assist, but the Argentine missed his chance for a hat-trick after hitting the post on a penalty kick. Raheem Sterling rounded out the scoring with a tap-in goal following Jesus Navas' cross in the 66th minute.

Manchester City had a chance to jump above Leicester City for top spot in the table with a home win today, but they were beaten handily by the Foxes, 1-3

There is no stopping Leicester it seems as City witnessed on a wet afternoon in Manchester. Statistically, City looked to be the better side. They had plenty of possession in the final third and had nine corners and a few free kicks from dangerous areas. The Foxes just had a solid defensive performance led by Kasper Schmeichel in goal and Robert Huth, who would score two of Leicester's three goals. The City defense certainly didn't perform like title contenders. As a consolation for fantasy managers and City alike, Sergio Aguero managed to score in the final minutes as the Foxes saw the game out. City's gap with Leicester doubles from three to six points now and may slip behind Tottenham if Spurs win later today.
