Sergio Aguero is set to miss Manchester City’s Premier League fixture against relegation-threatened Stoke on Monday, after sustaining a knee injury in training.
Aguero confirmed the bad news via his official Twitter page on Sunday.
The Argentine says he could be out for up to two weeks, which means he is expected to return for the visit to Everton at the end of March.
“During yesterday’s training I had a discomfort on my left knee. The club’s doctors told me I’ll be back with the team in approximately two weeks. Now it’s time for a full recovery!” Aguero tweeted.
Aguero is City’s top scorer this season with 30 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.
It leaves Pep Guardiola with only Gabriel Jesus as the only fit senior striker.
