Agüero sidelined for a month

MANCHESTER — Manchester City’s leading goalscorer Sergio Agüero is expected to be out for a month with a hamstring injury, the club’s coach Manuel Pellegrini said yesterday.

The Argentine striker hurt his hamstring after scoring the opening goal in City’s 5-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday which took City to the top of the Premier League. It was his 26th goal of the season in only 22 appearances.

He will now miss key games against Chelsea in both the Premier League and FA Cup, and at least one leg of the Champions League tie against Barcelona.

The Spanish side is due in Manchester on February 18 with the return leg at the Nou Camp on March 12. “The injuries are Samir Nasri, Javi García and Sergio Agüero,” Pellegrini told reporters. “The doctor has seen Agüero and he will be out for a month.”

“It will be difficult because he is a top player for us but we have the players to replace him. He has just come back from injury. Álvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko replaced him then and Stevan Jovetic can now.”

Free-scoring Premier League leader City hosts third-placed Chelsea on Monday having won eight successive league games since drawing at Southampton in early December.
