Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola played down injury concerns for Sergio Aguero after victory over Burnley.

Aguero's absence from the squad sparked fears City's record goal-scorer had aggravated the knee injury that had side-lined him for several months.

"Sometimes it is just a reaction on the knee," said Pep.

“It is swollen. Hopefully tomorrow he can come back to training. With Sergio, it is how he wakes up.

“He makes good training sessions, but then has niggles in his knee.

"Yesterday we decided not to select him. This morning he woke up with little problems in his knee and could not train.

“We know the injury he had is not easy for the recovery - we have to handle it as well as possible. When he is ready, he will play. “
