Manchester City have confirmed that Sergio Aguero will miss Monday night’s Premier League clash against Stoke City.

The club on it's official website explained that the Argentine striker suffered a knee injury in training over the weekend and will be assessed.

City travel to the Bet 365 Stadium, looking to move a step closer to the league title, before the Blues jet to Abu Dhabi for a warm weather training camp before the international break.

Aguero has allayed fears of a long layoff due to his latest injury setback even as there is a likelihood that he should join the squad on the trip to Abu Dhabi 

If that timescale is accurate, the 29-year-old - who has scored 199 goals in City colours - will be back in time for City's visit to Everton on March 31.
