Aguero limped off after three minutes of weekend win over Everton.
Manchester City will be without star striker Sergio Aguero for the next month following the knee ligament injury that he sustained during the opening stages of the weekend’s 1-0 victory over Everton at the Etihad Stadium this weekend, according to reports from the Mirror.
Aguero was replaced by teenage Spaniard Jose Pozo after just three minutes of the 1-0 victory against the Toffees, with Bosnian international Edin Dzeko entering into the fray later on in the game, something that represents the only real silver lining for manager Manuel Pellegrini after losing Aguero.
The Argentine international has arguably been the Premier League’s most decisive player so far this season and leads the goalscoring charts ahead of Diego Costa, making his loss a particularly brutal blow to City ahead of their crucial Champions League group stage clash against AS Roma on Wednesday – a game that City need to win to progress into the knockout stages of the competition.
Pellegrini will also be missing midfielder Yaya Toure for the trip to Rome through suspension after his sending off against CSKA Moscow two matchdays ago, whilst Vincent Kompany and David Silva could also miss out through injury.
