Sergio Aguero says his knee "feels like new" after struggling with a persistent problem since 2013.
Aguero took the decision to have surgery in April following Manchester City’s exit from the Champions League. "I spoke with the medical team earlier [in the season] and we agreed to wait. It didn’t improve," he told Argentine TV channel TyC Sports. "Pep [Guardiola] used me as a substitute a lot and told me to stay calm but after being knocked out, I told the doctors, I didn’t feel good. With the World Cup ahead, I preferred to do it because otherwise I could have missed out." Despite only making 22 Premier League starts, and completing 90 minutes on thirteen occasions, Aguero was still City’s top scorer with 21-goals which came at a rate of one in every 94 minutes played and defenders could be forgiven for fearing the worst ahead of the upcoming campaign. The Argentine has directly contributed to a goal in every 82 minutes since 2013/14 and facing a fully fit Aguero is a daunting prospect for any centre-back. May 18 - 5:34 AM

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola announced that forward Sergio Aguero will not return this season.

The forward had arthroscopic surgery on his troublesome knee this week, after playing with the injury since mid March, in the hopes of being available for the World Cup this summer with Argentina. The expected recovery time for such an injury is four to six weeks, barring any setbacks. Manchester City will also be without Fernandinho, due to suspension, this weekend, but otherwise look to be fit. Said Guardiola about Aguero: "Here, yes. It is four or five weeks [out]. Hopefully he is going to be ready for the World Cup and he will be ready for the next season. He is in Barcelona right now, for the first part of the rehabilitation he is going to be there."

Sergio Aguero's arthroscopic surgery could have more repercussions that just the end of the Premier League season.

Aguero has likely been ruled out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a couple knocks to his knee over the last few weeks, but Argentina's team doctor has his doubts over Aguero's place in the World Cup team this summer, saying that the star striker at least won't be 100 %. Said Homero D'Agostino: "That a player has undergone an arthroscope with 60 days to go before the World Cup is worrying. The recovery process will require at least five weeks...It's never going to be less than three or four weeks, or even more. I imagine that he will not arrive 100 percent fit with the limited time that is left before the World Cup."

Sergio Aguero is expected to miss the remainder of the season following a small surgical procedure on his knee.

The Argentine star was injured in training over a month ago but returned for a 15-minute cameo in the Manchester derby, only be caught by a heavy Ashley Young challenge which somehow went unpunished by referee Martin Atkinson. Speaking ahead of the Tottenham clash at Wembley, Guardiola confirmed Aguero would miss the game: "He made a huge effort [to play] in the last 20 minutes [against Liverpool] then said he couldn't run," revealed the City boss. "He had problems with his knee and could not train. Hopefully he will be ready for the last games and the World Cup." However, having clinched the Premier League title on Sunday, a decision was taken for Aguero to go under the knife to remedy a niggling problem. The striker is said to be targeting a return in May. "Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee," he tweeted on Tuesday. "Fully motivated to get back soon to the field."

Manchester City will have to fend off Tottenham without star forward Sergio Aguero due to a knee injury.

The Argentine forward came off the bench against Liverpool in a 2-1 Champions League loss this week, hobbling through the second half. Aguero missed much of March with a knee injury and then suffered a reaction after a challenge from Manchester United winger Ashley Young last weekend. Said Guardiola: "He was injured before the game [against Liverpool] but tried to help us. That's why he could not play from the beginning. He was not ready...He played less than 15, 20 minutes and after said he cannot run and was in a lot of pain. I don’t if he will be ready for Swansea. Hopefully for the last games we can have him.

Ahead of a massive week for Manchester City, Pep Guardiola said Sergio Aguero will face a fitness test on Saturday.

Manchester City can win the league on Saturday with a win over hated rivals Manchester United, but also have a huge Champions League deficit to overcome against Liverpool at home on Tuesday: both of which Aguero will want to be a part of if he can shake a knee injury. "I don’t know right now [whether he will play]," Guardiola said. "We have training this afternoon and we are going to see his physical condition. We have three massive games coming up - United, Liverpool and Spurs - we have to see the players condition. We have training later and we will see later."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he remains hopeful that Sergio Aguero will be fit for the weekend derby.

The Sky Blues are going to need all the help they can get in attack for the upcoming week with a chance to win the Premier League title on Saturday against Manchester United shortly followed by a second leg Champions League quarterfinal with Liverpool where they already trail 3-0. The Argentine has missed the last three weeks with a knee injury but Guardiola said he is steadily improving: "We will see. He is much, much better, but the physios and doctor spoke with him and he said he still wasn’t perfect. I hope he will be back for Saturday."

Liverpool won't have to worry about Sergio Aguero, at least for the first leg, in Wednesday's Champions League meeting with Manchester City.

Aguero hasn't played in the last three weeks since suffering a knee injury in training in mid-March, despite hoping to return against Everton over the weekend. But manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that the Argentine will need some more time to recover and won't be available for the first leg trip to Liverpool in tomorrow's Champions League quarterfinals. "Sergio is back in Manchester," Guardiola said. "He did not come. He was injured in the last two weeks. He is much, much better but the doctors spoke to him today and he said he still has a little bit of a problem and isn’t comfortable...We will see [for the weekend derby]."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola did not rule Sergio Aguero out from returning this weekend against Everton.

The Argentine's knee injury came at just the right time before a lengthy international break with the possibility that he would only miss one match. But the week ahead presents a big week for the Sky Blues, who, with a win against Everton on Saturday, can clinch the Premier League title against Manchester City next weekend. The Manchester derby is further bookended by a Champions League quarterfinal showdown with Liverpool. Said Guardiola about Aguero and John Stones: "[Aguero] is much, much better. We will see tomorrow if he is involved...John Stones has concussion in his head from the last game of the international break," he told press. He feels really good but the rules say he must take seven days off so he is not available. The other ones are okay."

On any other given day, the news of a Sergio Aguero setback in training would have dominated the headlines…. But not on Sunday!

The Argentine had to play second fiddle to Harry Kane which means his announcement via Twitter may have slipped under the radar. "During yesterday's training I had a discomfort on my left knee. The club's doctors told me I'll be back with the team in approximately two weeks. Now it's time for a full recovery!" Aguero will obviously miss tonight’s game at the Bet365 Stadium but he will be a part of the travelling squad which is heading to Abu Dhabi for a warm-weather training camp after the match. There are even reports coming out of Argentina that he could feature in the upcoming international friendlies against Italy and Spain. Fortunately for City, his injury coincides nicely with the return of Gabriel Jesus who, having missed the first two months of the year, is pushing for his first league start of 2018 after scoring in the Champions League.

Manchester City allowed Pep Guardiola to lift his first trophy as manager when they cruised to a 3-0 Carabao Cup final win over Arsenal on Sunday.

It is hardly the most prestigious trophy that Pep Guardiola has ever won but it is important in that it is his first as leader of the next stage of Manchester City's assault on European football. City dominated possession but didn't create a great deal on target. What they lacked in volume they more than made up for in precision as their only three shots on target found the back of the Arsenal net. After Sergio Aguero scored the opener it was never too much in doubt even though Vincent Kompany didn't add the second until the second half. Look for City to add at least the Premier League trophy to the League Cup and at least give the Champions League a serious run.

Sergio Aguero will not face retrospective action from the Football Association following his altercation with a supporter during the aftermath of Mondays FA Cup defeat at Wigan.

Television footage appeared to show the Manchester City striker pushing a supporter as fans descended onto the pitch at the final whistle. Aguero claims he was verbally abused and spat at by the Wigan fan, an incident which is being investigated by Greater Manchester Police, while the Argentine is said to be considering legal action for common assault. Both sides have been charged with failing to control their players after Fabian Delph was sent off, a decision which resulted in a heated argument between Pep Guardiola and opposing boss Paul Cook. However, the Football Association announced on Tuesday that no disciplinary action will be taken against individual players or staff. They have until 6pm on Friday February 23 to respond while both clubs have been asked to provide their observations following the crowd trouble at the end of the game.

Sergio Aguero scored four goals—all coming in the second half—in Manchester City's 5-1 win against Leicester City.

After Raheem Sterling opened the scoring in the third minute with his 15th Premier League goal of the season and Jamie Vardy equalized in the 24th, it was all Aguero all the time. The Argentine started his streak in the 48th minute after latching onto a cross from Kevin De Bruyne, who recorded three assists on the evening. The duo linked up again for another goal just five minutes later and Kasper Schmeichel didn't help his cause by gifting Aguero with a terrible pass out from the back for the hat-trick. But it was Aguero's final goal in the 90th that stunned the Etihad: a rippling shot that beat soared over Schmeichel, hit the crossbar and bounced down into the goal for the final tally of the day.

Manchester City didn't dwell too long on its first loss of the season thanks to a 3-1 win over Newcastle.

Aguero started the festivities in the 34th minute when Kevin De Bruyne whipped in a cross that the Argentine barely touched with a flick of his head, sending it past a helpless Karl Darlow while requiring slow-mo video replay to determine the goalscorer. Aguero doubled his tally in the 63rd minute when Raheem Sterling was pulled down inside the box. Aguero stepped to the spot and shot past Darlow with power. And in the 83rd, up 2-1, Aguero hovered in the area as the Etihad watched Leroy Sane with an incredible individual effort, powering past four defenders before playing it back to Aguero for the hat-trick to go 12 points ahead of Manchester United.

Led by Sergio Aguero, Manchester City added Bournemouth to its list of blowouts with a 4-0 win at the Etihad.

Aguero opened the scoring in the 27th minute with his 100th goal at the Etihad, heading in a Fernandinho pass. Bournemouth held tight at the back until Aguero chipped in a beautiful pass for Raheem Sterling's 12th goal of the season. Then the Argentine international was at it again in the 79th minute with another headed goal, this time courtesy of Bernardo Silva for his 12th goal of the season, further establishing his spot over Gabriel Jesus. Lastly, it was Danilo who notched his first goal in a Man City shirt, scoring in the 85th minute when Bournemouth were just trying to limit the damage. In team news, David Silva and Vincent Kompany both returned to the starting lineup as City extended its lead atop the table to 14 points.
