Manchester City have been dealt a major injury blow and striker Sergio Aguero could be ruled out for a month after suffering a hamstring injury.
The Argentine striker recently returned from a lengthy layoff but it seems that he has picked up a fresh injury.
“It depends on the injury, 10-15 days is the minimum,” Guardiola said. “If it’s a little bit longer it will be three weeks, one month.”
Manchester City will be without him for their Champions League clash against Marseille and the striker could miss the clash against Premier League champions Liverpool as well.
With Gabriel Jesus injured, the situation is far from ideal for Guardiola and Manchester City.
It will be interesting to see how Manchester City cope without their two strikers in the upcoming matches.
They have had to field their wingers up front at times and it seems that the likes of Sterling and Torres will have to fill in as the striker until Aguero or Jesus returns to action.
City will be hoping that their makeshift strikers can step up and deliver in the next few weeks. If they fail to replace Aguero/Jesus’ goals, it could seriously damage Manchester City’s title hopes this season.
Guardiola’s side have already started the season in mediocre form and they cannot afford to keep dropping points.
