Sergio Aguero Injured

Sergio Aguero, Manchester City

Agüero sustained an injury playing for Manchester City against Blackburn Rovers.

Agüero will miss Manchester City's upcoming clash with Aston Villa on Saturday.

He did not play for Argentina against Venezuela due to the the adductor strain he picked up during City's 4-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.

Mario Balotelli, who has been ruled out of Italy's two Euro 2012 qualifiers with a back injury and will not play this weekend against Villa.

City will Villa with only one formidable striker, Edin Dzeko, on their squad.

Carlos Tevez's two-week club suspension expires on Thursday, however Roberto Mancini stated that the forward is no longer part of his first-team plans.

City's coach David Platt says City will do well even without Balotelli, Agüero and Tevez.

"We have plenty of ways of playing. Yaya Touré, David Silva and Samir Nasri - three who can all work off the striker," he stated.

"Let's just concentrate on what we have available. We know we have a squad of players which means we can put a team out against anyone and make a good game of it."
