Aguero expected to be absent for four weeksKnee injury not as serious as first feared

Sergio Aguero is expected to be out for around four weeks, according to reports in Argentina.

It had initially been feared that the lay-off could be much longer, when the striker left the pitch in tears after sustaining the injury against Everton on Saturday.

There has, as yet, been no official confirmation by the club however.

Pellegrini said after the game: "Sergio has a problem in his knee ligament. We will see how serious it is after he has had a scan.

"It is not good news and I don’t think he will be able to play next week. He will not be with us for Roma, which is an important game.

"He was more calm when I saw him after seeing the doctor but, generally, we are not sure how he is."
