Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has confirmed he has a tear in his hamstring after undergoing tests on the injury in Italy.

Aguero missed City's 3-0 win over Watford in the FA Cup third round after suffering the problem late in the 3-0 win over Stoke on New Year's Day. Manager Roberto Mancini initially said he hoped to have to his joint top-scorer back for next weekend's trip to Arsenal, but that now looks doubtful.

"The studies confirmed I have a torn muscle," Aguero wrote on his Twitter account. "We have to keep on thinking positive and try to recover in the best way possible."
