Tear blow for Aguero

Sergio Aguero has a tear in his hamstring

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has confirmed he has a tear in his hamstring after undergoing tests on the injury in Italy.

Aguero missed City's 3-0 win over Watford in the FA Cup third round after suffering the problem late in the 3-0 win over Stoke on New Year's Day. Manager Roberto Mancini initially said he hoped to have to his joint top-scorer back for next weekend's trip to Arsenal, but that now looks doubtful.

"The studies confirmed I have a torn muscle," Aguero wrote on his Twitter account. "We have to keep on thinking positive and try to recover in the best way possible."

He added: "For that, I've travelled to Italy where a specialist is treating me. I'll keep you up to date in how the injury evolves."

Aguero has 10 goals for City this season, level with Edin Dzeko, with both players on the mark against Stoke.

Carlos Tevez replaced his fellow Argentinian in the line-up against Watford and scored the opening goal.
