Manchester City sweat over Aguero injury ahead of Watford trip

Understrength Manchester City racks up sixth straight win in EPL Man City extend lead at top, Man United salvage draw | Bangkok Post: news

Manchester City maintained their unbeaten run with a 3-1 win over Bournemouth to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table as Manchester United fought back to salvage a 2-2 draw at Southampton on Saturday.

Sterling restored City's lead with a close-range finish early in the second half after Bournemouth had gone in level at the interval when Callum Wilson's header cancelled out Bernardo Silva's opener.

Gabriel Jesus started against Bournemouth in Aguero's absence, but was unable to get on the scoresheet.

"We have training right now in the afternoon [on Monday], so I can not tell you the answer right now", Guardiola said when asked about the status of Aguero and Zinchenko.

And although Sterling has now equalled his league total of eight, Guardiola acknowledged Aguero would be missed if he doesn't recover for the trip to Watford in midweek.

It is unclear whether Sterling will be rejoined in City's attack by Sergio Aguero at Vicarage Road after the striker sat out the Bournemouth win with a muscular problem.

"Obviously I want to play more minutes, but I respect who is playing at the moment".

The 21-year-old did score a hat trick in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk but has found it tough after a disappointing World Cup where he failed to score as Brazil were dumped out in the quarterfinals.

Heading into this weekend, Palace had managed two points at home this season, scoring only two home goals, which were both penalties.

"In the first half Raheem was not involved and in the second half he changed the game".

City have won 12 of the first 14 games of their title defence and is still averaging more than three goals per game. "I don't know what he ate but it will be on the menu for the next games".

The hosts needed only 16 minutes to break the deadlock, Silva tucking into an empty net after Asmir Begovic was only able to parry as Leroy Sane attempted to get on the end of Oleksandr Zinchenko's ball over the top.

But Guardiola says his star can not rest on his laurels and warned Premier League rivals that there is far more to come from the 23-year-old. People think it's easy for us but that is not the truth, so I like to win in this way.

'We were in the game for large periods so we are walking away slightly disappointed to have conceded three goals to three things we had worked on'.
