Manchester City’s top striker, Sergio Aguero, is back in training after he missed six matches with a calf injury and is likely to return later this month.
Aguero’s coach, Manuel Pellegrini, was seemingly happy with the return of his main striker, even though he won’t make tomorrow’s League Cup squad to face West Ham.
“I think Sergio will be back during January – he’s working, he is training,” Pellegrini told British media.
“It is very good news. All players recovering from injuries is good news, especially a player as important as Kun Aguero.”
Despite his injury, Aguero remains the second-top scorer in the Premier League so far this season, with 13 goals in 15 games.
Manchester City are still in contention for four titles this season, but the Chilean asserted he and his side are taking it one game at a time.
“We are not thinking about the four trophies, we are just thinking about winning the next game we have to play,” the City boss said.
“Tomorrow is one of the two games of the semi-final of Capital One, it is very important we play here at home and I suppose we are going to have to have a very good performance to try to win against West Ham.
“But after West Ham, we will only be thinking about Newcastle. So I repeat, we are not thinking about the trophies, we are only thinking about the present.”
Will Manchester City continue their brilliant home form in the League Cup as well or can struggling West Ham make a statement for their under-fire manager?
