Sergio Aguero to miss Manchester City's trip to Tottenham Hotspur

Aguero out for Manchester City vs. Tottenham Tottenham Hotspur v Man City preview: No Aguero for Guardiola's title-chasing side

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola reacts on the touchline during the Premier League match between Swansea City and Manchester City at Liberty Stadium on December 13, 2017 in Swansea, Wales. As soon as Chris Smalling's well-timed finish struck the back of Ederson's goal last Saturday to give United a 3-2 lead, numerous home fans at the Etihad Stadium turned to each other and lamented their collapse.

Guardiola, speaking after the decision was made official, claimed City voted in favour of VAR.

Guardiola seems to playing mind games to help his players.

Despite crashing out of Europe in midweek, City could be crowned champions this weekend if they beat Tottenham and second-placed Manchester United lose at home to West Brom on Sunday.

However, by conceding eight times in three games, Guardiola's men unveiled a weakness that hadn't been exposed by their Premier League rivals for the vast majority of the season.

"Aguero is injured. He was injured before the game but made a huge effort to help us for 10 to 15 minutes".

"Aguero is injured - he was injured before the game, that was why he did not start", Guardiola told a pre-match news conference.

"What I say to the players - and what they show every game - is that it is not done".

The past week has taken a little of the shine off City's outstanding season with the loss to United coming between defeats by Liverpool in both legs of their Champions League quarter-final. A team that included players such as Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, David Beckham, Iker Casillas and Raul lost six of their last seven games to finish seven points behind Valencia having led by 11 points at one stage.

"I think Manchester City agreed to it but the other top teams, United and Chelsea I think, they didn't want it", the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss said. We have to do it from tomorrow.

"Of course it can happen, I assure you". So of course it can happen, no doubts about that. If we are not able to in the end and United win the league then all we can says is "congratulations".
