Sergio Aguero: Could miss two weeks with knee injury
Mar 13 2018 by Marjorie Miles
Sergio Aguero will miss two weeks of action after picking up a knee injury in training, Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya reports.
He became the club's all-time leading scorer this term but Aguero has been eyeing his 200th Manchester City goal for quite some time, and was unable to find the net in recent victories against Arsenal (twice) and Chelsea.
If Aguero can stick to the two week timetable, City's record goalscorer may only be missing for one game.
City do not have a game next weekend as their scheduled opponents, Brighton, are in FA Cup action, while worldwide fixtures are slated for the following weekend.
He said: 'During yesterday's training I had a discomfort on my left knee.
"The doctors at the club confirmed to me that in a couple of weeks I can be back".
Stoke, the 15/1 outsiders for a shock win, have registered only one win from their last 10 top-flight matches, meaning few will be backing the Potters to stun City tonight, which would be their first win since Paul Lambert's opening game in charge. "Now it's time for a full recovery!"
Aguero has been in sensational form this season with 30 goals in all competitions, 21 of those coming in the league.
Brazil star Gabriel Jesus will start his first Premier League match this year for runaway leaders Manchester City at Stoke on Monday.
