Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed how Sergio Aguero suffered a hamstring injury during his side’s 1-1 draw with West Ham this afternoon.
Goal’s Man City correspondent Jonathan Smith made the news known on his personal Twitter channel as Pep addressed the media after the game.
Man City’s all-time top goal scorer left the field of play at half-time with Phil Foden coming on in his place.
At the time, it wasn’t clear if it was tactical or a forced change, but Foden had an immediate impact nonetheless, levelling the scores after just five minutes on the field.
Aguero will likely be ruled out for even more action, having missed the start of the season with a knee injury.
It’s terrible news for City, who are hovering on the edge of the top ten with eight points from their opening five games.
Pep must turn City’s fortunes around and get them back into title contention – and now he’s going to have to do it without his main goal provider.
