Manchester City are waiting to learn the seriousness of Sergio Aguero’s injury.

The striker was forced off with a knee problem in Monday night’s 5-0 Premier League drubbing of Burnley.

Mahrez and Foden got themselves on the scoresheet against the Clarets with two strikes apiece, with David Silva grabbing the other, but there was no place amongst the goals for Aguero, who had to come off with a knock.

The Argentina international will undergo scans in the coming days to determine the severity of the injury, which could require surgery.

With City out of the running for the Premier League title, manager Pep Guardiola has focused his efforts on the Champions League, a competition from which the club could be banned next season depending on the outcome of their court case with UEFA.

Having Aguero available will go a long way to helping City’s chances of winning the competition, which is set to resume in August.

Aguero’s father Leonel fears the worst for his son, suggesting in a radio interview that it is a suspected tear of the meniscus.

Aguero senior also feels that Sergio will travel to Barcelona to see Pep Guardiola’s specialist surgeon on Thursday or Friday if the outcome is as initially feared.
