Aguero not fit to return


Sergio Aguero could return to the Manchester City squad for the trip to Arsenal on Monday week.

Aguero has been struggling with a heel injury since City's win over Southampton on November 28 and will definitely miss the visit of Swansea to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

He is making progress and manager Manuel Pellegrini is hopeful he will be available for the trip to Arsenal in their final game before Christmas.

"I hope he will start working with the squad Tuesday or Wednesday," Pellegrini confirmed.

"We play on Monday against Arsenal so we hope he will be fit for that game. Agüero is improving but he will not be ready for this weekend."

Martin Demichelis has an achilles problem but the defender is in the squad to face Swansea, while Fernando, Pablo Zabaleta and Vincent Kompany all miss out.

“He (Demichelis) had a problem with his tendon but he is in the squad list. Fernando and [Pablo] Zabaleta are not ready yet – Fernando has just a muscle injury so he will have at least two or three weeks more. Pablo and Vincent Kompany I hope next week they can start working. Samir Nasri is more long term."
