Sergio Aguero Manchester City

The Argentine striker is expected to miss the English Premier League (EPL) match on Monday against Stoke City but hopes to arrive in time for Argentina's friendly matches against Italy (March 23 in Manchester) and Spain (March 27 in Madrid).

Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho have also been selected, but Sergio Aguero is absent from the squad due to a minor knee injury.

City do not have a game next weekend as their scheduled opponents, Brighton, are in FA Cup action, while global fixtures are slated for the following weekend.

"During yesterday's workout I had a discomfort in my left knee", the 29-year-old tweeted.

He became the club's all-time leading scorer this term but Aguero has been eyeing his 200th Manchester City goal for quite some time, and was unable to find the net in recent victories against Arsenal (twice) and Chelsea. The club's doctors told me I'll be back with the team in approximately two weeks.

The result means City need only three more wins to guarantee the title, but they do not play again until March 31 when they take on Everton at Goodison Park.

Given the gap between City's next two matches the squad will fly to Abu Dhabi following the game against Stoke on Monday for a warm weather training break.
