Pep Guardiola says Man City will assess Sergio Aguero’s injury in the coming days.
The 31-year-old limped in the 84th minute of City Cup 2-1’s final victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.
Aguero, who has been seen carrying an ice pack on his right knee full-time, opened the scoring for City to claim a fifth EFL Cup winner medal in the past seven years.
Asked about the extent of the attacker’s injury, Guardiola told talkSPORT: “It was a kick. We will see in the coming days. “
Goals from Aguero and Rodri gave City a 2-0 lead after half an hour, but Mbwana Samatta cut the deficit in half four minutes before half time.
Raheem Sterling, Aguero and Bernardo Silva missed opportunities to kill the game in the second period before Claudio Bravo pointed a Bjorn Engels expert to the post late.
City is fortunate to add to its trophy cabinet this season with the FA Cup and the Champions League playing.
And Guardiola insists that his team has already won two trophies this quarter, counting the Community Shield as silverware.
City beat Liverpool on penalties to win a second successive Community Shield trophy in August.
Guardiola: “I’m really sorry, this is the second of the [trophy] firm. We won the Community Shield.
“I know if you are a Liverpool fan, you would have said the title to Liverpool. We have two titles, four titles last season.
“I want to give credit to the players and to this club because at the start of the season to win a single title is difficult.
“We have won the two we could win so far. The Premier League is over, but we have two more and we will try to compete. “
