Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero up a hamstring injury during his side's 1-1 draw against West Ham United at the London Stadium.

“‘Injury. No, I don’t know [what it is]."

Because of his injury, it is highly likely that Aguero will likely miss clashes against Marseille, Olympiacos, Sheffield United and Liverpool.

Aguero’s latest injury only adds to Guardiola’s squad problems, as Manchester City are devoid of strikers upfront with Gabriel Jesus also sidelined.

The fact that the Citizens have not made the brightest start to the season also does little to help their cause.

In five league games, Guardiola’s men have only won twice and sit in 11th on the log with a mere eight points.

On the day, Guardiola attributed their lack of cutting edge in the Westham game to the Hammers defending a bit too deep.

Legit.ng earlier reported that West Ham vs Man City settled for a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium after both teams could not separate themselves in the game.

Phil Foden canceled out Michail Antonio's first-half strike as City settled for their second disappointing draw for the new season.

The Citizens were without a couple of first-team players including Kevin de Bruyne, Nathan Ake as the Hammers took control.
