Sergio Aguero returns from Knee Injury
Sergio Aguero returned from his knee injury and played for 25 minutes during Manchester City’s Premier League match against Everton but his inclusion in the match made no difference as the match ended with a 1-1 draw.
The Argentine player didn’t make a significantly big impact in a game that Manchester City wanted and needed to win in order to keep their pressure on Chelsea who are currently leading the way in the Premier League.
Manuel Pellegrini wasn’t particularly to see his team draw when playing off with Everton as it was Manchester City who enjoyed having more shots launched against the net of their opponents with a total of 18 shots being fired but only 2 of them were actually on target.
The Chilean manager is well aware of the problems that his team has been facing especially during the absence of Sergio Aguero who has been recovering from a knee injury and has been out of action for a month and played for 25 minutes during this match which wasn’t enough for him to make a substantial impact in the pitch.
“Look, we finished very bad. That is why he has signed Wilfried Bony for £28million, even though he may not return from Africa Cup of Nations duty until mid-February if Ivory Coast reach the final’’ Manuel Pellegrini said.
When the Argentine entered the pitch in the 2nd half, he looked a bit rusty but he is expected to be back in full force within a few days as Manchester City will be facing off with Arsenal on January 18 in a match that the team of Manuel Pellegrini cannot afford to lose if they want to stay toe to toe with the table-toppers Chelsea.
