The Argentine striker has given City a further increase as they continue their pursuit for the quadruple
Sergio Aguero”feels better” and may be fit for Manchester City’s Champions League quarter-final initial leg with Tottenham, Pep Guardiola states.
City’s top scorer hasn’t featured as the 2-0 Premier League win against Fulham at Craven Cottage nine days ago, where he had been on goal during the first half but replaced with a muscle complaint before the summertime.
Aguero’s understudy Gabriel Jesus transformed an early diving header to provide Pep Guardiola’s side a 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in their FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday to keep their struggle for a historical quadruple.
The Brazil international could be necessary from kick-off once again in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday, though Aguero did participate in coaching with his team-partners in the Valley on Sunday as City stayed in London to tackle their trainings.
Talking about Aguero’s fitnesscenter, Guardiola advised a pre-match news conference:”He feels better, he also coached with all the team for the very first time and feels better.”
Aguero, 30, has scored 29 goals in all competitions this year and boasts an impressive yield of 10 in 13 matches versus Spurs.
That contains all four at a 4-1 win in the Etihad Stadium at October 2014, even though he’s without a goal in his previous six looks against Mauricio Pochettino’s guys.
Guardiola’s other principal physical fitness concerns come in full-back following ex-Tottenham guy Kyle Walker was substituted in half-time because of a back injury against Brighton, however he did manage to train along with his teammates in the Valley on Sunday.
Benjamin Mendy made his first competitive start because knee surgery in November through the semi-final and may be called upon because Oleksandr Zinchenko remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Guardiola included:”I believe Kyle feels just a little bit better — we will see today — and Benjamin recovered very well, I believe.
“The physician did not tell me the reverse so I believe they’ll be potential contenders [for Tuesday].”
Following Tuesday’s first leg, City return to Premier League action against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday ahead of their return leg with Tottenham in Etihad Stadium following Wednesday.
