Manchester City Pep Guardiola has confirmed that striker Sergio Aguero will not feature in the Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening at Wembley Stadium.
The 29-year-old sustained a knee injury from a challenge by Ashley Young during the Citizens’ 3-2 defeat to Manchester United last weekend at the Etihad Stadium.

The Manchester City manager said: “After action from Ashley Young (last Saturday) he could not train. After Tuesday’s game said he couldn’t run.”
“Hopefully he will be ready for last games and World Cup.”
Keith Hackett: “Ashley Young should already have conceded a penalty in the first half for a handball, but his challenge on Sergio Aguero in the second half was not only a nailed-on penalty, but also a definite red card for the United player.” [Telegraph] pic.twitter.com/RS7y5Byocm
