Sergio Aguero Will Miss Manchester City Game Against Aston Villa

sergio aguero Sergio Aguero Will Miss Manchester City Game Against Aston Villa

Manchester City have been dealt a blow after the club confirmed today that striker Sergio Aguero will miss Wednesday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa due to injury.

“Sergio Aguero couldn’t recover 100% from his groin problem so he is not in this squad list,” said Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini.

“Maybe he has a chance to be fit for Sunday. We will see in the week. I was not 100% sure if he was fit for tomorrow – that’s why he is not in the squad.”

Aguero scored Manchester City’s equalizer against Everton on Saturday in the dramatic 3-2 win, but the Argentine limped off the pitch immediately after scoring the goal.

Pellegrini added his perspective on the remaining Premier League matches for City:

“We have to win the game against Aston Villa; then at the end of the week, we will see which team has more points. We will prepare exactly the same as we have done in all the games during the year. The next game is always the most important.

“It is a difficult game because all the teams are under pressure. A lot of people said Everton were not going to win because they didn’t want Liverpool to win the title but we had a very tough game against them.

“Crystal Palace did not have anything to fight for but they were very strong. I am sure Aston Villa will be a difficult team for us but I hope that if we play at home as we have done so far, we can win.”
