Sergio Aguero is in contention to feature for Manchester City at Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday in spite of suffering a overall health scare even though on international duty.

The striker was taken to hospital as a precaution after complaining of dizziness as Argentina lost four-2 to Nigeria in the Russian city of Krasnodar on Tuesday.

City had been quick to dismiss initial reports Aguero had lost consciousness after fainting, emphasising he was in a position to leave the stadium unaided.

He returned to Manchester for further tests on Wednesday, with a drop in his blood stress believed to be the purpose that he fell ill.

Manager Pep Guardiola has been maintaining a close eye on Aguero because then, but he was scheduled to train with the rest of the squad on Thursday and Friday, and is anticipated to play some component at the King Energy Stadium.

Aguero was in fine form prior to the international break, with 10 goals in 12 games at club level for a team who have won 16 out of 17 matches in all competitions this season, drawing the other.

City are beginning to look unstoppable, having secured a spot in the Champions League final 16 with a four-2 win at Napoli ahead of a three-1 defeat of Arsenal sent them eight points clear in the Premier League.

Aguero scored in each of those matches and struck once again for Argentina on Tuesday just before illness got the improved of him, so his fitness would be of significant aid to Guardiola as he seeks to preserve City’s fine kind.

Guardiola will also check on the fitness of Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph, both of whom withdrew from England duty with minor injuries.

Sterling had a back injury and Delph a calf issue, but both are anticipated to be obtainable to face Leicester.

- ‘We have won nothing’ -

France left-back Benjamin Mendy (knee) is City’s only long-term casualty, when club captain Vincent Kompany is close to complete fitness after much more than two months out with a calf issue.

"At the moment, when I place my boots on I feel light, I feel excellent, I feel as although I am not carrying an injury and that makes me confident," Kompany stated.

On City’s prospects under Guardiola, the defender added: "He will be the initial to say we have won nothing. Let’s not get carried away."

City will face a Leicester side playing just their third game below Claude Puel, but the new manager has already created his mark by making Demarai Gray a important figure in his side.

The England Below-21 winger has began each and every of Puel’s very first two games at the helm and performed nicely in each, having struggled to establish himself beneath previous managers Claudio Ranieri and Craig Shakespeare.

"Coming from Birmingham, where I played football every single week and I was looked at as 1 of the key players, to being in and out for the next 18 months was tricky," admitted Gray.

"I by no means anticipated to walk straight into the Leicester team, but I assume I certainly had my times when I could have played. That’s my opinion, but the managers pick the group.
