Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says striker Sergio Aguero will be out for “a few weeks” because of a suspected thigh injury.

Aguero came off in the second half of Saturday’s 2-1 win over Chelsea in the Premier League.

Guardiola says Aguero will not be fit for the derby match against Manchester United in the league on December 7. Before that, City has league matches against Newcastle and Burnley, and also plays Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday.

“We have Gabriel (Jesus), we have (Raheem) Sterling who can play in that position so we are going to live without him for a while,” said Guardiola.
