Pep Guardiola has revealed that Sergio Aguero was unavailable for Man City's win over Bournemouth due to injury.
Manchester City ran out comfortable 3-1 winners against Bournemouth on Saturday thanks to goals from Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan, but the Premier League leaders were without their talismanic centre forward Sergio Aguero. The Argentine has suffered from a myriad of injuries throughout the years, but had appeared to be at 100% heading into this season.
"After Lyon [in the Champions League] I didn't know we were going to come back here and doctors say to me Sergio cannot play. If he plays, maybe four or five weeks out. In that situation in this month with a lot of games, he was not safe. That is normal."
"I'm not quite sure [if he can play]. We'll see tomorrow [Sunday].

"It is what it is. Adapt. With a deep squad you have some players in the second team, you're going to play 11 and everybody has to do their best. That is what it is. I play nine games but many other contenders, our opponents, play nine games too." The Spaniard added.
