(Sporting Alert) — Manchester City is without Sergio Aguero for tonight’s Barclays Premier League clash with Aston.
The Argentine international suffered a knee injury and is out of the contest fellow countryman Carlos Tevez starting in his place.
Manchester City are 15 points behind leaders Manchester United in the EPL standings and will want to take tonight’s road win to cut that gap down to 12.
Aston Villa, at the same, will also be hunting a win that will take them out of the relegation zone.
In fact, any point tonight for the home side would see them moving above Wigan in the table standings.
