Agüero ruled out of Villa game
MANCHESTER, England — Manchester City top-scorer Sergio Agüero has been ruled out of today’s game against Aston Villa, where victory would put City on the verge of securing the English Premier League title.
Agüero left the pitch with a groin problem soon after scoring in a 3-2 win over Everton on Saturday. “He couldn’t recover 100 percent from his groin problem, so he is not in the squad list,” City coach Manuel Pellegrini said, adding the Argentine striker could return for Sunday’s season-ender against West Ham United. Pellegrini says: “Maybe he can have some chances, we will see the way he improves during the week.” —AP
