Manchester City face Everton in the final Premier League match. It will also be Sergio Aguero’s last Premier League match, at least expedited to be.

Pep spoke about Aguero, injuries' and more.

Let’s dive in-

“Everyone is fit,”

“Sergio trained yesterday and today a little bit and tomorrow we will decide.

“As much as he can play he will play. He’s been injured, trained two days partially and tomorrow will be the same.

“Joao can’t play because he was sent off. The rest are fit.

“I’m going to put the players out when I decide to win the game. We have six days until the UCL final, if one player is injured, unlucky, they can be injured today, tomorrow, the moment you put the boots on.

“Kyle Walker couldn’t play against Brighton because of a twist in his ankle playing with his boys - he is OK now.”

“I can’t imagine how many more goals he would have scored if he was able to be fitter than he was in some periods.

“He is incredibly loved by the backroom staff; he’s a very nice person and a quality of the player isn’t necessarily to add anything else because his numbers when he’s got are incredible.

“Sunday’s the last game at the Etihad, I’m sure the fans at the stadium will show our supporters all around the world by giving him a tribute for what he has done so far, - the titles, numbers, performances are incredible.

“When he’s fit and has continuity in training and games, he’s a guy like Romario - he’s like a lion in the jungle, he kills the opponent.

“But his quality is the unique sense of goal. The last goal versus Palace defined him.

“He controlled it, two or three steps then, wow! So much speed and then the quality to make the goal… he has this quality.

“He could play till 40 and score goals, it depends on his physical condition. When he’s good in himself he can still do whatever he wants.”

Pep is ready and the scenes will be emotional as City and Aguero bid their farewell with fans in the stand.
