Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has expressed fears that striker Sergio Aguero could miss the rest of the season after he was forced off in the 5-0 win over Burnley on Monday night.
Aguero was fouled in the box late in the first half by Clarets captain Ben Mee, in an incident that would later be given a penalty by VAR, and limped off.
The frontman was replaced by Gabriel Jesus and Guardiola fears Aguero has aggravated a knee problem that he had already been struggling with.
“It doesn’t look good. unfortunately,” said Guardiola.
“We are going to see tomorrow. he was struggling in the last month with a problem in the knee and now he felt something so we will see tomorrow exactly what he has but it doesn’t look good for this season.
“Tomorrow we will see and know exactly what he has. The doctor says it will take time. A few games [out] for sure but maybe tomorrow the tests he will get good news – we will see.”
