Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that star striker Sergio Aguero will be out for their crunch tie with Aston Villa tomorrow.
In an interview he had this to say: "He couldn't recover 100 per cent from his groin problem, so he is not in the squad list."
"It was not 100 per cent sure if he was completely fit for tomorrow, that is why I didn't want to have a risk with him, but we will see during the week if he can play on Sunday."
The news will come as a blow to Man City as attempt to capitalise on Liverpool's shocking 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace yesterday.
Nonetheless, with Edin Dzeko scoring three goals in City's last two matches and Yaya Toure in great goalscoring form, City have more than enough to cover the absence of Aguero - like they have done for pretty much half the season.
