Pep Guardiola hopes Sergio Aguero has avoided serious injury after he asked to be withdrawn during Manchester City’s win at Fulham.
Aguero fired his 19th league goal of the campaign as City leapfrogged Liverpool and moved back to the top of the table with a facile 2-0 victory at Craven Cottage.
Bernardo Silva stroked home City’s opener before laying on Aguero’s goal, with the visitors in total control inside half an hour.

However, the Argentine was withdrawn before the hour as City coasted through the second half, leaving manager Guardiola to downplay any injury issues. “He says he felt something but hopefully he’s not injured,” the Spanish tactician said. “He decided on not continuing.
Hopefully it will not be a big issue. “We’ll see tomorrow, maybe the day after tomorrow.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
