Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is back in contention for Sunday’s crucial top-of-the-standings clash against Liverpool at Anfield, his coach Manuel Pellegrini confirmed on Friday. The Argentina international, who is City’s leading striker with 26 goals in all competitions so far this season, has missed the past five games with a hamstring injury.
"Sergio is OK. He has worked the whole week with the squad as normal. He doesn't have any problems," Pellegrini told his pregame press conference. "He is a top player, he is a player that is very difficult for the other defenses to stop him. Of course he is very important for us.”
Liverpool leads the Premier League heading into this weekend’s crucial game, with third-place City four points behind but with two games in hand.
