Sergio Aguero could miss Manchester City’s Premier League clash against Everton on Saturday, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun have claimed that the 28-year-old could miss the match at the Etihad Stadium after picking up an injury with national side Argentina.

The prolific forward picked up a calf strain in their 2-2 draw with Peru, and was replaced after 73 minutes by Ever Banega.

He is set to go for a scan on Tuesday and is a major doubt for Argentina’s next match against Paraguay on Wednesday.

The injury will hit City with a huge blow with Aguero recently returning from a suspension.

He has started the season in incredible form, bagging 11 goals in eight appearances in all competitions and he would have been a huge threat to the Toffees.

The striker scored the last time the two side’s met in January during a 3-1 Manchester City win in the League Cup.

It is likely that youngster Kelechi Iheanacho will now lead the line against Everton with the 20-year-old bagging three goals and providing three in eight fixtures this campaign.

Despite Aguero’s possible omission from the side, attacker Nolito is set to return from a three-game suspension, while star man Kevin De Bruyne could also recover from injury in time to face the Toffees.
