Manchester City picked up a crucial win against Chelsea yesterday but they could be without Sergio Aguero for some of the ‘toughest part of our season’ after the forward hobbled off in the second half and Guardiola confirmed the injury didn’t look good on initial assessement.
Aguero was replaced by Gabriel Jesus in the 77th minute of Manchester City’s 2-1 win over Chelsea and is set to undergo a scan on today. Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez cancelled out Ngolo Kante’s opener to take all three points, but now face an anxious wait to see how serious Argentine’s injury might be.
Guardiola told Sky Sports: “I think Sergio will be bad. The doctor will have to look, he thought it was a kick, but it’s maybe he has strained something. But we will see tomorrow.
“The feeling is if it is muscular, we are going to lose him in the toughest period of the season, but it is what it is. We have young players and we will try.”

Pep Guardiola has already lost Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane to long-term injury, and Aguero absence would be a huge loss for City.
