Sergio Aguero will not be returning to action for Manchester City anytime soon after a season disrupted by illness and injury, according to Pep Guardiola.
“He is still not training on the field,” Guardiola said ahead of City’s clash with Burnley on Wednesday night. “He started to move a little yesterday. He will need a few weeks to come back.
“But he is negative, this is the most important thing. He is healthy again and now he will come again. As the top scorer, it is important for us to have him back.”
The City striker is also set to miss the big title-chasing clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
But before that, City are aiming to extended their 12-game winning streak after a flawless January when Guardiola’s side set a new record for most victories in a calendar month – nine wins across all competitions.
