Pep Guardiola insists he will take no risks with Sergio Aguero’s fitness when Manchester City visit Watford on Tuesday.
The Premier League leaders battled to a 3-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, with Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan on target as City’s all-time top scorer Aguero looked on from the stands.
Before the match, Guardiola confirmed the Argentina striker was resting up due to a “muscular disturbance” and afterwards conceded there are no guarantees he will return in midweek.
“We will see the day after tomorrow [Monday]. We do not want to take any risks,” said the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss.
“If Sergio becomes injured we will lose him for a long number of days and we can’t afford to do that.”
