Sergio Aguero suffered a ‘bad’ muscular injury against Chelsea, says Pep Guardiola
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola fears he could be without Sergio Aguero for a substantial length of time after??the??striker suffered a”bad” muscular??injury during the??2-1 win over Chelsea.
Aguero has been replaced by Gabriel Jesus as City and hobbled off 13 minutes from time came from behind to beat Chelsea in the Etihad Stadium.
City hit back following N’Golo Kante strike with goals from Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne to shoot all three things, but now face an anxious wait to determine how severe Aguero’s harm may be.
Guardiola told Sky Sports:”I believe Sergio will be bad.
“The doctor will need to appear, he thought it was a disconnect, but it’s maybe he has strained something. But we will see tomorrow.
“The feeling is if it is muscular, we are going to lose him at the roughest period of this year, but it’s what it really is.
“We’ve got young players and we’ll try.”
Guardiola revealed that David Silva and midfielders Rodri had suffered cramp through the win over the side of Frank Lampard.
The City manager added:”Together with Rodri and David Silva, they had been issues with cramp, and they were tired.
“Rodri is per month and a half with no playing games.
“David after the international break failed to train too much and after such games you want some rhythm in your thighs.
“These games are so demanding and that is why it occurred.”
