The Manchester City fans have been reacting to a reported injury blow to their all-time record goalscorer, Sergio Aguero. According to Jose Alvarez Heya, Aguero won’t be available for the game against Everton and is a doubt for the Champions League fixture versus Liverpool next week. The club doesn’t want to risk Aguero until he’s 100% meaning he’ll miss the next couple of games.
Kun Agüero won't be avalaible against Everton. He is feeling much better but they decide in the training of this morning to wait and won't risk until he is 100% fit. He is doubt for Liverpool game (now is more % that he won't play than yes),but depends on the evolution this days.

Losing Aguero before such a huge fixture against Liverpool next week is obviously a blow for the City fans propping our bar up, however, if there was one club in England who can cope without their marquee striker, it’s Pep Guardiola’s City side. The club has their young Brazilian sensation, Gabriel Jesus to rely on as well as having the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling playing around the striker.
Aguero is the club’s top scorer this season with 30 goals, but even without his goals, the club would still be in an incredible position this season. Sterling, Sane, De Bruyne and Jesus have scored a combined 54 goals this season and Liverpool’s defence have a serious task on their hands if they’re to keep that figure at 54. The Sky Blues go into the tie as obvious favourites given their form and last two meetings against Liverpool. Despite the fact Liverpool came out 4-3 winners over City at Anfield, their Premier League aggregate scoreline against Guardiola’s men is 8-4, due to their 5-0 thumping at the Etihad back in September.

Time for Jesus to step up. Show us why you deserve 100k+. I don’t even mind Aguero out for Anfield after earlier this season
