The latest reports suggest that Sergio Aguero will be out for a minimum of four weeks after suffering a knee injury during the opening minutes of Saturdays’ British Premier League clash against Everton at the Etihad Stadium.
News on Sunday broke that the Argentine had strained lateral [outer] knee ligaments with the striker expected to be out for around a month initially – club representatives have confirmed the forward will target a return for the FA Cup in January or the fixture at Goodison Park the following weekend. The prognosis ends any speculation regarding a season ending injury and although disappointing - damage to the cruciate would’ve meant a significant period out. His absence presents Stevan Jovetic – recovering from a minor knock – and Edin Dzeko – just back from a calf injury – with an opportunity for an extended run in the first team. The highly regarded Spanish youngster Jose Pozo will also hope for increased involvement in the first team. Dec 8 - 12:50 PM

Sergio Aguero was forced off the pitch in the 5th minute of Manchester City's clash against Everton with a knee injury.

The striker went down early on and limped off the pitch in tears. He looked to be in a lot of pain and it was a very disappointing sight to see for both fantasy managers and soccer lovers. If Aguero has any ligament damage, Edin Dzeko could be good add in fantasy. We'll know more about the injury in the coming days so check back for an update early next week.

Sergio Aguero scored two goals and added an assist in 74 minutes of play Wednesday night.

After conceding an early fluke goal off a deflected clearance from Pablo Zabaleta, City controlled possession, banging in two first half and two second half goals in a 4-1 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Aguero was nothing short of spectacular, finishing brilliantly on both goals and assisting on Stevan Jovetic's goal too. The Argentine striker leads the league in goals with 14 and is a must-own in all fantasy formats.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero is (unsurprisingly) the top striker pick for Week 14.

It should've been another 30 point week for Aguero against Southampton in Week 13. Wrongly booked for a dive when clearly fouled in the box, which denied him the chance to score from the spot, contributed two assist and missed a glorious one-on-one chance. Sunderland beware - the Argentine is unlikely to go scoreless for three Premier League games in a row.

Manchester City were able to leapfrog Southampton and move to 2nd in the table after defeating the Saints in a match which featured a terrible decision early on by the referee that cost Sergio Aguero a penalty chance.

You may see the name Mike Jones trending in social media right now, the referee behind one of the worst decisions seen in quite some time. Aguero was dribbling into the area and Jose Fonte tripped him up. The ref, instead of rewarding a penalty, slapped Aguero with a yellow card for simulation. The remainder of the first half was rather uneventful and looked to be anyone's game, but the Sky Blues got things going in attack in the 2nd half. Yaya Toure opened the scoring, giving him two game-winning goals in successive matches. Then, even with defender Eliaquim Mangala forced off with a second yellow, City began to boss things. Substitute Frank Lampard and Gael Clichy would both score to pull away and both were assisted by Aguero, saving his fantasy day. The race to catch Chelsea rages on for City.

Sergio Aguero's hat-trick - including two goals in the last five minutes - kept Manchester City's Champions League hopes alive in a dramatic victory over Bayern Munich.

The stats tell you all you need to know about Aguero's form this season. 17 goals in 14 starts in all competitions is a remarkable return and the Argentine is - almost single-handedly - keeping Manchester City's title and Champions League aspirations alive. Manuel Pellegrini's men did their best to throw away another lead despite Bayern Munich being down to 10 men for the majority of the match, but Aguero was their saviour, scoring twice in the final five minutes. Win in Rome on 10 December and City should progress to the knock-out stages, but even a draw will be enough if Bayern beat CSKA Moscow.

Sergio Aguero continued his sizzling form by scoring twice for Manchester City, but QPR gave the Sky Blues enough problems to end things on level terms, 2-2.

Chelsea widened the gap today on perhaps their best competition in the race for the league title this season as City were battled for 90 minutes by a gritty Rangers side. Aguero is no stranger to success at Loftus Road, it was the sight of the goal that won City the title in 2012. In inclement weather, Aguero was as pesky as ever, and scored both of his goals in similar fashion. Each instance he received a deep pass in the area draped by defenders but was able to shake them off and score like a machine. The assists were key, as Eliaquim Mangala first and Yaya Toure later, both executed deep accurate passes that allowed Aguero to do the rest. Unfortunately, the defense was shaky and that led to dropping two vital points in the title race. Martin Demichelis was responsible for the own goal that would prove to leave things level. Vincent Kompany is needed back in a hurry.

Manchester City were able to defeat their crosstown rivals Manchester United 1-0, with the lone goal provided by Sergio Aguero.

City looked to have the edge in the opening half hour but once Chris Smalling was sent off, they had the Red Devils under their spell. Near the end of the half, Aguero went down in the box for what looked like a possible penalty and a similar incident occurred on the hour mark. Then, in the 63rd minute, Yaya Toure found Gael Clichy out wide and the left back whipped in a low cross to Aguero in the box and the Argentine sensation delivered a smart finish to give him 10 goals on the season, passing Diego Costa for the chase to the Golden Boot. United to their credit put up a fight to the bitter end, limiting City to the lone goal, when the match could have easily been busted wide open. Costa may have exploded onto the scene but Aguero makes a statement today that he is the top forward to own in fantasy.

Sergio Aguero had a monster game, scoring all four of Manchester City's goals, as the Sky Blues cruise past Tottenham, 4-1.

Aguero was a bit greedy today as Pellegrini went with a lone striker and the superstar forward had a superstar day, grabbing all the goals. He made two goals from the penalty spot and could have had five goals in total but missed yet another penalty chance. His effort today shoots him right up to a share of top scorer in the league, matching Diego Costa on nine. Today's performance will break the hearts of all who did not have him in their fantasy XI's, while those that did invest can pop the champagne bottle.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero is capable of adding to his five Premier League goals as Tottenham visit the Etihad this weekend.

When fully fit, Aguero is one of the best players in world football, so it's bad news for Tottenham that the Argentine is approaching peak sharpness just in time for the Week Eight match-up. Aguero's pace, balance and strength combined with his movement and explosive finishing ability make it incredibly difficult for defenders to keep him quiet and the Manchester City striker has looked back to his best in the opening two months of the season, having scored five Premier League goals already. City thrashed Spurs 6-0 in the corresponding fixture last season with Aguero grabbing a brace, and he can cause more damage this weekend.

Sergio Aguero continued his strong early season goal-scoring form with his third league goal as Manchester City came back from behind for a point against Arsenal.

It was a game of momentum swings as Arsenal dominated the early-going narrowly missing an opener as new signing Danny Welbeck hit the post on a chip attempt. Manchester City scored the opener against the run of play with Sergio Aguero smashing home a Jesus Navas cross. Arsenal scored the next two goals through Jack Wilshere and Alexis Sanchez. With a loss looming, Martin Demichelis headed home late from a corner. City hit the post twice in the late going with Edin Dzeko and Alex Kolarov narrowly missing out on winners.

Sergio Aguero has signed a new five-year deal at Manchester City.

The new contract is great news for both Manchester City fans and Aguero. The new deal means the club are confident Aguero can overcome his injuries and return to being a top class striker. The Argentinian is currently recovering from an injury he picked up during the World Cup but Manchester have enough strikers to find a plethora of goals with or without Aguero. Until he returns, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic will lead the line.

Sergio Aguero will target a return in week two after failing to recover into form due to injuries suffered during the World Cup.

Aguero has suffered a series of injuries last season and during the World Cup and the team has stated time and time again that they will be extremely caution in getting Aguero back to full fitness. That means fantasy managers are to stay away until they see Aguero playing 90 minutes. Chances are, he will first make a few appearances off the bench until eventually being eased into playing a full match. Stay away for now.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has turned down the Brazil job, according to reports.

The story has been picked up by the Manchester Evening News after it was widely reported across the Chilean media yesterday. Brazil's World Cup boss Luiz Felipe Scolari resigned following a disappointing end to their tournament, and the El Mercurio newspaper believe Pellegrini was one of the managers under consideration as a potential successor. However, they report that the 60-year-old intends to honour his Etihad contract after guiding City to the Premier League title in his debut season in England.

Argentina Starting XI: Romero; Zabaleta, Demichelis, Garay, Rojo; Pérez, Mascherano, Biglia, Lavezzi; Higuaín, Messi.

Argentina face off against Germany in the World Cup Final but Sergio Aguero is left on the bench as he is not yet 100% fit. The attack will once again revolve around Lionel Messi and he attempts to win his first World Cup.
