City will not only have to do without Sergio Aguero until the New Year it’s also looking like we’ll be without Vincent Kompany and Edin Dzeko too.

Dzeko didn’t even get to take to the field in the one-nil win at Leicester as he was injured in the warm-up, suffering a calf injury and that saw youngster Jose Pozo come into the starting XI.

Manuel Pellegrini decided to show caution against Roma and left Kompany out in our Champions League win but a recurrence of his hamstring strain saw him taken off late in that win.

The signs aren’t looking good for either….

Aguero will be out for another four or five-weeks with Pellegrini telling the media after our win that he doesn’t anticipate Dzeko or Kompany playing again before the year is out.

He said: ‘Vincent has the same problem as his hamstring a few weeks ago. That was one of the reasons he did not play on Wednesday against Roma.

‘Edin has a muscle injury in his calf, so maybe both will be more than a couple of weeks.

‘It is impossible that Vincent and Edin will be ready before the new year. We will see with Vincent but I think it will be very difficult for them to both play again this year.’

We’re cursing muscle injuries at the moment and Pellegrini knows ‘we must find a reason why’ this is happening? Playing so many games doesn’t help not that he’ll complain because that isn’t his way.

He added: ‘I can never complain about the players who cannot play. We won’t complain about injuries.’

As we’re without Stevan Jovetic too, who might miss a couple of weeks, we’re mighty light on attacking options in particular.

Due to this Pozo could be getting more first-team football in the coming weeks than he might have imagined, certainly expected, but Pellegrini also isn’t ruling out the introduction of another youngster from Patrick Vieira’s young squad.
