Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been ruled out of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg at Liverpool with a knee injury.

Aguero has missed the past five games for City and Argentina with the injury.

“Sergio is much better but doctors spoke to him today (Tuesday) and he said he still has a little bit of a problem and isn’t comfortable,” said boss Pep Guardiola.

Liverpool have defensive injury problems, with Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan all missing.
