Manchester City could be without Sergio Aguero from the start against Marseille in the Champions League.

The Argentine has only recently recovered from a knee injury to start the last few games, but might be missing against Marseille after coming off at the break in the draw against West Ham.

The injury isn't believed to be serious, but it might be a bit too soon for Pep Guardiola to put his star striker back into the starting line-up so quickly.

In the absence of Gabriel Jesus, too, that could mean Raheem Sterling featuring in the centre-forward position - a position he was deployed in earlier in the campaign.

In the Champions League win against Porto a week ago, Fernandinho came off the bench only to be substituted a few minutes later after being injured.

He, along with Benjamin Mendy, will likely be absent until after the international break.

Kevin De Bruyne made his return from injury off the bench against West Ham and should start, while Phil Foden could be handed a start too after impressing in the second half against the Hammers.
