Phil Foden replaced Aguero on the pitch at the start of the second half and scored the crucial goal that helped them secure one point away from home. Guardiola said when asked about the striker:
“‘Injury. No, I don’t know [what it is]."
It was later revealed on the Manchester City website that Aguero had in fact suffered a hamstring injury in the first half and is set to be out for the next couple of days.
Because of his injury, it is highly likely that Aguero will likely miss clashes against Marseille, Olympiacos, Sheffield United and Liverpool.
Aguero’s latest injury only adds to Guardiola’s squad problems, as Manchester City are devoid of strikers upfront with Gabriel Jesus also sidelined.
The fact that the Citizens have not made the brightest start to the season also does little to help their cause.
In five league games, Guardiola’s men have only won twice and sit in 11th on the log with a mere eight points.
On the day, Guardiola attributed their lack of cutting edge in the Westham game to the Hammers defending a bit too deep.
“We started really good, we concede a goal the first time they arrive. They defend so deep and we had the chance at the end to score the goal. Now we move forward
