Man City blow as star striker tipped to miss Juventus clash

Manchester City could be without the services of Sergio Aguero for their clash against Juventus tomorrow, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The 27-year-old was forced off with a knee injury during the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace following a tackle from Scott Dann, an event manager Manuel Pellegrini believed was a red card offence.

He is now likely to miss the upcoming Champions League match against the Serie A champions, with Pellegrini admitting that he is still unsure over whether Aguero can return in time.

“It was an important kick on his knee,” he said.

“We’ll see if he can recover between now and Tuesday.

“It’s very difficult to say now. It’s important to see how he recovers. We’ll see.”

However, City will be boosted by news that both David Silva and Raheem Sterling could be available for selection having missed the match against the Eagles.

Silva was sidelined with an ankle knock while summer signing Sterling, who joined from Liverpool, was out with a hamstring strain.

The club have now continued their perfect star to the campaign, winning all five of their matches, registering the full 15 points and are yet to concede a single goal.
