MANCHESTER — Sergio Aguero is ready to come back straight into the Manchester City side to face Liverpool after missing the last four weeks through suspension.
The Argentina striker has not played in the Premier League since picking up a second red card of the season in the 3-1 to defeat to Chelsea on Dec. 3.
City have won their last three games without him, but Pep Guardiola is ready to throw Aguero straight back into the side for the potentially crucial clash with second-placed Liverpool.
And Guardiola could also have John Stones in his squad with the defender making a quick recovery from a swollen knee picked up City’s 3-0 victory over Hull City on Monday.
“[Aguero] is ready. He came back good from Argentina,” Guardiola told a news conference. “Finally he came back after seven games banned — three games plus four — and we are happy he is back.
