One notable absentee on the Manchester City squad on Saturday's FA Cup match against Crystal Palace was Sergio Agüero. The City striker was left out of the bench and didn't even travel with the team to London.

Manager Pep Guardiola was asked in his post-match press conference about Agüero, and his response is a little bit of a concern.

“Sergio felt a small problem two days after the game against Tottenham. He felt something in his leg. We have four days until the next game and we will see.”

It sounds like just a knock and it's nothing serious, but Agüero has quite a long list of leg injuries throughout his City career, so it's best not to assume he'll be 100% fit to face West Ham United on Wednesday.

For the first time in forever, losing Agüero to injury wouldn't be the worst thing ever. There's always Kelechi Iheanacho who always scores when he starts, and Gabriel Jesus was wonderful for 90 minutes as the team's striker against Palace.

Don't get me wrong, I want Agüero back from injury against West Ham, but I'm not that desperate that he's doubtful to play. Still, get better quickly, Kun.
