The Managing director of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola has named midfielder Ilkay Gundogan among the four players who will replace injured striker Sergio Aguero.
Aguero needs surgery after sustaining a knee injury during the 5-0 victory over Burnley on Monday at the Premier League of Man City.
“It is expected that Argentina International will miss the rest of the Premier League season.
But Guardiola believes that Aguero will play in the role of Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Benardo Silva.
“The Spaniard said this ahead of the Premier League clash between Man City and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.
Speaking of players capable of replacing Aguero, Guardiola was quoted by Manchester Evening News at his pre-match press conference Wednesday as saying: “We have no doubts about Gabriel.
“The only doubt is that not one single player can play every three days.”
“Raheem [Serling] can play in this position, even Gundogan and Bernardo [Silva]. Not like a [proper] striker but we can use them.”
