Aguero Out For Another Week

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could make his return in next week's clash with Fulham.

The Argentine, City's top scorer with 30 goals last term, has been sidelined since tearing a hamstring in the New Year's Day 3-0 win over Stoke at the Etihad Stadium.

Citizens boss Roberto Mancini confirmed the 24-year-old will miss Sunday's showdown with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Mancini said: "Sergio is not available for Sunday. We don't want to take a risk.

"He continues to have treatment this week. I hope he can play against Fulham next game.

"If Arsenal was the last game (of the season), okay, but like this it is impossible."

The Italian expects any one of Carlos Tevez, Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli to ease Aguero's absence.

"Sergio is out for one game but this doesn't change (anything) because we have another three strikers," said Mancini.

"We can change our system any moment, not because we are missing Sergio or other players."
