Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has been ruled out of this week's Champions League clash with Juventus.

Chilean coach Manuel Pellegrini, who won the title in 2013/14 with City, revealed that the forward won't star on the European scene this week.

As reported by BBC Sport, Pellegrini stated: "Sergio is not fit. I hope he [Aguero] will be OK for the weekend."

This should soothe the fears of Manchester City fans, who will be wary of the damage that a long-term injury to Aguero could do to their campaign.

The 27-year-old picked up a knee injury last weekend in City's hard-fought victory over Crystal Palace.

Class of City 

With maximum points, City are currently at the top of the Premier League table. This contrasts starkly with beleaguered champions Chelsea, who lie 11 points back and just one spot above the relegation zone. 

The good news for City fans is that summer signing Raheem Sterling has recovered from a hamstring problem and will be available to take on the Italian champions. David Silva will also be fit, having recovered from an ankle problem. 

Aguero, widely believed to be among the world's finest strikers, has been a key player for Manchester City over the last few seasons. Pellegrini will hope to be able to summon the Argentine once more when City resume their domestic charge against West Ham this weekend.

Perhaps the City boss will call upon the services of former Swansea striker Wilfried Bony to play in the midweek fixture with Juventus.
