Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will face no further punishment for his alleged stamp on West Ham captain Mark Noble during his side's 2-1 defeat on Saturday.

The Argentinian cut a frustrated figure as the Hammers earned a surprise victory over the reigning champions at Upton Park. Goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Diafra Sakho earned the home team the win, and while a superb effort from David Silva set up a tense finish the Citizens couldn't complete the comeback.

Caught out

Aguero looked to be in hot water after he was seemingly caught kicking out at Noble during the defeat, and it was suggested that he could be banned for the upcoming game against Manchester United this weekend.

However the FA have deemed that because referee Martin Atkinson dealt with the incident on the pitch, the Argentine won't be hauled before a disciplinary panel.

"Aguero has managed five goals in six appearances against the Red Devils, and will look to improve his record this weekend at the Etihad Stadium"

The Manchester City ace has been on fire this season and has nine goals to his name in nine league appearances so far - although he could do little at the weekend as his side missed a chance to close the gap on Chelsea at the top of the table.

The news will be a setback for Manchester United who have grown sick of the sight of Suarez in recent seasons. He's managed five goals in six appearances against the Red Devils, and will look to improve his record this weekend at the Etihad Stadium.

Victory

Manchester United go into the game on the back of a morale boosting draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday. The Red Devils had fallen behind to a Didier Drogba header but battled back and grabbed an equaliser late on through Robin van Persie.

Both Manchester City and Manchester United managers Louis van Gaal and Manuel Pellegrini have been nominated for the Ballon d'Or coach of the year prize.
