Aguero ruled out of Manchester City’s Liverpool clash



Aguero on target as Manchester City ease into League Cup final

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been ruled out of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg tie against Liverpool at Anfield after failing to recover in time from a thigh injury.

The Argentine is City’s all-time top scorer having notched 199 goals in all competitions for the club.

“He has stayed in Manchester, he didn’t come,” City manager Pep Guardiola told a news conference ahead of training on Tuesday.

“He’s been injured for the last two weeks and he still isn’t fit,” added the Spanish manager.

The City boss was unable to say if Aguero will be fit for Saturday’s Premier League derby clash with Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

Aguero’s absence means a likely start for Brazilian Gabriel Jesus in attack.

There was some good news on the injury front for City with left back Fabian Delph, who has been out since February, fit again and in contention for a place in the starting line-up.
