Manchester City’s dynamic midfielder James Milner has expressed his thoughts on teammate Sergio Aguero’s knee injury. Aguero, is expected to be out for a month and is set to miss Manchester City’s crunch encounter against AS Roma. Manchester City will direly miss Sergio Aguero, as the prolific striker has been Manchester City’s leading light. Aguero, has already scored 14 goals so far in this campaign and has been a driving force for Manchester City, who suffered a slump in form, recently. James Milner expressed his thoughts and said that Aguero’s injury is going to be a massive miss for Manchester City.
“Sergio has been absolutely outstanding, so he is going to be a massive miss for us. Hopefully he is back soon.’ said Milner
“They are not easy shoes to fill, Sergio Aguero’s, but with the ability the other players have, I’m sure they’ll fill his shoes no problem.”
Milner remains optimistic and hopes that Edin Dzeko alongside Stevan Jovetic, could fill in and make up for the goals – coming through Aguero.
“But it is good timing that Edin is coming back. He is fantastic goalscorer and hopefully Stevan will be available for midweek as well, so we have got plenty of players.
Although Manchester City would Aguero, they would look to draw inspiration from their form. Manchester City have been clinical and impressive lately, although Manchester City are still not matching their capibilities , displayed last season, the Sky Blues are winning games and have now won five in a row in all competitions. The latest win coming against Everton on Saturday.
“It has been pleasing, the momentum we have built since the last international break. Hopefully we can keep that going for the Champions League and take that momentum into the Christmas period coming up.”
“We probably didn’t play as well on Saturday but it was a different kind of performance. We ground it out and you need to do that to be successful.
“Obviously after the [Chelsea] result, we knew we wanted to get in touching distance and get them looking over their shoulder.”
“We have played better but you need to win those sort of games if you are going to win the title and we managed to scrap it out.
“It was all about the win. It was massively important to keep the momentum going, especially before Roma.” Milner added.
With Chelsea dropping points over the weekend against Newcastle United, Manchester City are now just three points behind the Blues. Aguero’s injury could be a major concern for Manchester City as both Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic, have failed to impress in this campaign so far.
Meanwhile Manchester City would give a late fitness test to captain Vincent Kompany and hope the David Silva would return for their penultimate encounter against AS Roma. Manchester City lie bottom of their group in the Champions League and have to win against AS Roma, whilst hoping that other results go in their favor, if City are to qualify for the next round.
