It’s good news for Manchester City – report


The Big Man

Manchester City’s star man Sergio Aguero will be out of the side for a month after damaging knee ligaments at the weekend, according the latest reports. The Mirror assuages the fears of City fans by saying:

Manchester City will be without star striker Sergio Aguero for a month following his knee ligament injury.

Senior club sources believe the damage to knee ligaments suffered against Everton is not a serious injury and that talk of months on the sideline is wide of the mark.

And The Daily Mail says:

Manchester City will have been praying for good news, but it looks like he’ll be out for at least a month.

Actually, we think that this has to be seen as good news. With Manchester City’s talisman having come off the pitch in tears, and with a history of problems to that knee you could easily imagine that he was going to be out for most of the season.

If it is only a month then Manchester City just need to concentrate on getting over the line in Rome before what looks like a very forgiving fixture list in the remaining weeks of the calendar year – Palace, Burnley and Sunderland at home (on New Years Day), plus Leicester and West Brom away.

So, although it seems like terrible news to lose a player in this sort of form for the festive period, it could be a lot worse. Manchester City can take close to full points without Aguero and welcome him back, fresh, for a title push on the other side of Christmas.

The big one is Roma. A big performance there will set City on a great course.

Manchester City fans: can you win in Rome without Sergio?
