Pep Guardiola says he is unsure if Sergio Aguero will be back for Manchester City’s clash at Watford on Tuesday night.
Argentina international Aguero missed the 3-1 victory against Bournemouth last time out – the sixth straight Premier League win for the Citizens – with a muscle injury and he could be unavailable for the match at Vicarage Road.

Guardiola says the forward is in danger of being out for a month if he aggravates the current problem and the Spanish tactician may decide to keep the 30-year-old in the treatment table for the time being.
The City boss also revealed Oleksandr Zinchenko would be assessed ahead of the match whilst confirming midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is not yet fit to return from damaged knee ligaments.
“I don’t know (if they can play),” he said at a press conference. “We have training this afternoon, so I can’t tell you the answer now. Kevin De Bruyne is not ready. The other two I don’t know right now.”
With the games coming thick and fast this month, Guardiola is expected to utilise his squad, meaning there could be starts for David Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Fabian Delph against the Hornets.
