Pep Guardiola Confident Sergio Aguero In 'Perfect' Condition Despite Hospital Trip

Pep Guardiola Confident Sergio Aguero In 'Perfect' Condition Despite Hospital Trip

Manchester City correspondent Jonathan Smith grades Pep Guardiola and how his side have performed so far this season.

"Yeah, I have something in mind to replace Otamendi".

Guardiola confirmed that Aguero, 29, has no problems after he was taken to hospital at half-time during Argentina's 4-2 friendly defeat to Nigeria in Russia on Tuesday.

The City boss said: "He arrived two days ago".

Manchester United and Tottenham are the nearest chasers, while Conte's champions sit a further point back in fourth. Since he moved to Manchester City in 2011, the Argentinian striker has been an important player for the club.

When asked about wonderkid Phil Foden, Guardiola reiterated that the 17-year-old is part of his plans and will not be loaned out in January. Yesterday he could not train.

It is of course merely a quirk of the fixture computer, but City's previous visit to this part of the East Midlands was a disaster of discouraging proportions.

Sergio Aguero suffered a dizzy spell while away with Argentina. "He is involved with us, training with us".

Agüero has scored 10 goals in 12 appearances for Premier League leaders City this season.

"I don't know if Delph will be able to play because in four sessions he has trained two", he said. "Normally you get the full week but we've had internationals so we'll do what we can and make sure we're all ready". "Kyle can play there".

So, as the Premier League gears up to restart, City's challenge in the Midlands on Saturday is clear: to keep the runs going.

Jamie Vardy scored a hat trick as the Foxes raced into a 4-0 lead at the King Power Stadium before two late goals made the score line look less disastrous.

Guardiola has previously suggested that he could retire once his time as City manager comes to an end. It's one of the toughest games we have, especially after the international break.
