Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is still out for a month, according to City boss Manuel Pellegrini.
City manager Pellegrini confirmed earlier today that Premier League top scorer Sergio Aguero is likely to be back in the mid of January.
The Argentina international suffered a knee injury against Everton on 6th December. He was predicted to be out for atleast six weeks and the Chilean has made it clear that he will take the whole time.
The former Real Madrid boss is confident that Aguero will be back to face Arsenal. He also added for the Boxing Day clash against West Ham United that duo strikers Stevan Jovetic and Edin Dzeko and skipper Vincent Kompany are not fit for this game. But Jovetic and Kompany are expected to be back at the end of December but the others two are out till the mid of next month.
While he also added that Frank Lampard's future will be resolved in the coming days. The former Chelsea midfielder is on loan from MLS side New York City and his loan contract expires in January.
The 36-year-old has been impressive for the Manchester City and the Citizens are hoping to extend the deal.
Manuel Pellegrini added: “Lampard is very important to our team so I hope he will stay here.”
Lampard will surely be eyeing to stay in his homeland in the Premier League but it all depends on New York City. However, both the clubs are owned by same owners.
