Aguero, who has 199 goals for the club, has not started a game since City's victory over Chelsea on March 4. Following a month-long lay-off he returned to action as a late substitute in the derby defeat to Manchester United on April 7, when he was hurt in a controversial challenge from Ashley Young that went unpunished. After that he was unable to train fully in the build-up to the second leg of City's Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool on April 10. Again, he was only able to appear as a second-half substitute.

With the issue still bothering him, he was ruled out of last Saturday's 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur. The striker was this week named in the Professional Footballers' Association's Premier League team of the year. In November, he became City all-time leading record goalscorer, surpassing the longstanding mark of 177 goals set by Eric Brook that had stood since 1939, when he was on target in a 4-2 Champions League group game away to Italian side Napoli.

Aguero had already assured himself of a prized place in the Manchester club's history by scoring the dramatic extra-time winner on the final day of the 2011/12 season that saw City to a 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers as they snatched the Premier League title from under the noses of local rival United. This season's success means Aguero has now won the English title three times with City, having also starred in their 2013/14 triumph.
