Sergio Aguero has had a great season so far for the Sky Blues, scoring nine goals and assisting two others in 12 appearances this campaign, but supporters have found a potential silver lining to the news that he will miss the impending Manchester Derby.
After Pep Guardiola’s side overcame Chelsea at the Etihad on Saturday, with Kevin De Bruyne and a stunning solo effort from Riyad Mahrez cancelling out N’Golo Kante’s opener, some seemingly bad news surfaced following the much-needed victory – with star striker Aguero ruled out for ‘a few weeks’ with a thigh injury.
Would Kingsley Coman be a good replacement for Leroy Sane?
This blow couldn’t come at a worse time for City, with the Manchester derby looming in their fixture calendar, a game that the Argentine famously thrives in – having levelled the record with Wayne Rooney last season for all-time Premier League derby goals.
However, judging by the responses on Twitter, some supporters have found a potential silver lining with Gabriel Jesus stepping in his place – reacting with surprising positivity to the potential absence.
Here’s what they had to say on social media.
