Aguero ready to return

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted he is closing in on full fitness, and could be back in action on Wednesday night.

I´ll be ready for action this week.

My injury is improving slowly. Recovery´s going very well. I´m back to sprinting on the field and moving the ball around.

I´ll be fully recovered by the Cardiff game and depending on how the week´s training goes I may be able to show up for a few minutes on the second leg against Blackburn for the FA Cup.

Pellegrini rages over challenge

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa should have been dismissed for the foul which injured Samir Nsari.

It should have been a red card for the tackle by Yanga-Mbiwa on Samir Nasri. A direct red card - we didn’t have any extra help from the referee today.

Nasri has a serious injury with his knee – it was directly a red card. Maybe it’s medial ligaments.
