Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed striker Sergio Aguero will be out “for a few weeks” with the thigh injury he sustained in Saturday’s win against Chelsea.
Argentina striker Aguero, 31, hobbled off after 77 minutes of the 2-1 victory.
Aguero – who missed five games last term with a groin problem – has scored 13 goals in 16 games this season.
- “Sergio will be out for a few games,” said Guardiola.
The manager added Aguero will “need a miracle” to be fit for the Manchester derby on 7 December.
Gabriel Jesus, who has featured mainly from the bench this season, is expected to feature more prominently during Aguero’s absence.
The Brazil international, who has scored five goals in 16 appearances, said: “I am not happy Sergio is injured.
- “I don’t like it when my friends are injured, but every day I work hard and I am ready.”
