(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, PEP GUARDIOLA, SAYING: "Of course we're going to miss Sergio (Aguero) because we need him.

And unfortunately, we had a lot of problems this season with injuries - big ones with Leroy (Sane) and Aymeric Laporte.

But we are going to wait for him.

And meanwhile, we have Gabriel, we have (Raheem) Sterling who can play there in that position.

So, we are going to live without him for a while." STORY: Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will be sidelined for a few weeks with a tendon injury that could rule him out of next month's Manchester derby, manager Pep Guardiola said on Monday (November 25).

Jesus said he was not happy about Aguero's being sidelined, but said he is ready to step in for the team.

In better news for City, Guardiola said Rodri and David Silva, who were also substituted due to cramps, are both fit to play while Oleksandr Zinchenko is still recovering from a knee surgery.

City are top of Group C with 10 points -- five ahead of Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb -- with two games to go.

Their final game is in Zagreb next month.
