Manchester City lose Aguero because of injury

MANCHESTER (Reuters) - Manchester City is losing their Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero in the 34th round of the English Premier League on Wednesday after Spanish coach Josep Guardiola revealed his injury.

"Sergio Aguero will not be able to play on Wednesday. He has not been training for the past two days. I hope he will be able to come back on Saturday or Tuesday and we will see how it develops in the coming days," the Spanish coach said at the press conference on Tuesday.

Aguero suffered a thigh injury during Saturday's 2-0 win at Fulham on Saturday and left the pitch in the 57th minute. The Argentinian striker is also likely to miss Saturday's semi-final against Brighton in the FA Cup semi-final, And against London rivals Tottenham next Tuesday in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Guardiola is confident of his Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus to lead the Citizens' campaign in his quest for a historic four-season, winning the professional League Cup and still struggling on three fronts - the league and the cup - as well as the continental competition.

Guardiola said: "Gabriel is ready." He has a good season, and it is not always easy to play in this club and in the same center as Sergio. He is vying against a legend, against a wonderful player living his best season since coming to the club, when he plays Gabriel, plays well. He will help us on Wednesday, wrestle and score goals and create spaces for others.

Manchester City will have a perfect chance to regain the top of the English Premier League with Liverpool, two points behind "77 vs. 79" with a game against arch-rivals Manchester United.
