Man City wait to discover extent of Aguero injury
Manchester City face an anxious wait to discover the extent of an injury to Sergio Aguero, that forced the Argentine striker off during their 5-1 Premier League win over Tottenham, BBC Sport has reported.
Aguero will be assessed on Thursday after appearing to pull up late in the first half at White Hart Lane, after having opened the scoring as Man City took the three points they needed to go back to the top of the Premier League. He now looks likely to miss the top of the table clash with Chelsea on Monday.
It is not long since Aguero returned from a calf injury, with this being his first Premier League start since the game at home to Arsenal on December 14. The goal he scored on Wednesday was his 50th in the Premier League, and his 25th in all competitions this season.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini said of Aguero’s injury: "We will see how he is after he has seen the doctor on Thursday. He has injured his hamstring. Now we must wait and see how serious it is.
"We have tried not to depend on one player but we will always miss Sergio because he's a top player and we hope to have him again as soon as possible."
