Sergio Aguero: Could miss two weeks with knee injury

Sergio Aguero will miss two weeks of action after picking up a knee injury in training, Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya reports.

City do not have a game next weekend as their scheduled opponents, Brighton, are in FA Cup action, while worldwide fixtures are slated for the following weekend.

Aguero, however, is set to travel with the Manchester City expedition to Abu Dhabi for a five-day training camp there.

"During yesterday's workout I had a discomfort in my left knee", the 29-year-old tweeted. The club's doctors told me I'll be back with the team in approximately two weeks.

He is yet to lose a league game since signing for Manchester City and it is not unrealistic to envisage the Brazilian completing another season with that record untarnished. Now it's time for a full recovery'.

The injury-prone striker has been in terrific form for the league leaders this season, with 21 goals in the Premier League alone.

Aguero will, however, be hoping to be fit for Argentina's friendlies against Italy - to be held at City's Etihad Stadium - and Spain on March 23 and 27.

Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus both return to the Manchester City starting lineup for the Premier League fixture at Stoke City.
