Reports claimed City’s record goal-scorer had aggravated the knee injury, but Guardiola says otherwise.

Pep Guardiola has quashed rumours suggesting striker Sergio Aguero had suffered an injury set-back.

The Argentine wasn’t in the Man City squad that thrashed Burnley 5-0 at the Etihad on Saturday afternoon, leading to reports claiming the -year-old sustained an injury.

However, Guardiola poured cold water on those reports as he revealed City’s record goal-scorer is focused on building his fitness.

"Sometimes it is just a reaction on the knee,” said Pep as Sky Sports reported.

“It is swollen. Hopefully tomorrow he can come back to training. With Sergio, it is how he wakes up.

“He makes good training sessions, but then has niggles in his knee.

“Yesterday we decided not to select him. This morning he woke up with little problems in his knee and could not train.

“We know the injury he had is not easy for the recovery - we have to handle it as well as possible. When he is ready, he will play. “
