Manchester City gaffer Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero will be out for an extended period after suffering a groin injury in his side win against Chelsea on Saturday.
The Argentine pulled up in pain in the second half of the 2-1 win and immediately signalled to come off the pitch. Guardiola then replaced him with Gabriel Jesus. According to the City boss, Aguero will undergo scans on Sunday but he fears the worst after consulting with his striker.
In his post-match press conference, Guardiola said: “Aguero, we will see tomorrow. It doesn’t look good.”
Speaking further, Guardiola said David Silva also suffered a muscle strain, while Rodri also left the pitch in discomfort. According to him, the Spain midfielder suffered cramp following his recent hamstring strain.
Commenting on his side win over Chelsea, Guardiola hailed Chelsea for their impressive performance at the Etihad, which saw N’Golo Kante give the visitors the lead, before goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez secured victory for his side.
He said: “We won against an incredible top side. Chelsea in the last 20 years have been great.
“Frank is a manager with courage. I judge managers with the courage to play. Chelsea do. They have a fantastic team. It was a great victory for us.”
