Manchester City Talisman, Sergio Aguero is set to make his first start for the club since October against Birmingham City in the FA Cup.

The Argentine striker has been battling with a knee injury since last season.

According to Pep Guardiola, The 32-year-old is now ready to start.

“Yesterday he trained really well, today he was off. Tomorrow if he feels good he is going to play”.

“Sergio, he’s unique, but he’s had a tough injury, really tough. The important thing is his mood is exceptional, better than ever”.

“He’s going to start and the minutes (to be played) his level, performance or knee will dictate”.

“If he can play 90 minutes it will be great, or 60 or 30 minutes will be great. What’s important is that he has good quality minutes as much as possible. We will see what happens with him.”

“It would be great to have him fit and in the best condition,” Guardiola said.

“He’s optimistic and positive, he’s been saying he will do a good season, ‘I will score a lot of goals’, and this is the most important thing.

“But we don’t want to put him under pressure. There are games that maybe we don’t need him, but we do for most of the games, for 80 or 90 percent of games we need him as a striker.”

Aguero is Man City’s record goal scorer but he has only played nine games this season with only three starts.
