Manchester City striker Aguero passed fit for final day showdown against West Ham
Manchester City have been handed a major boost as they look to close out their title challenge, as Sergio Aguero has been passed fit for their final day showdown with West Ham, reports BBC Sport.
City will clinch the title providing they avoid defeat to the Hammers at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday after Liverpool’s capitulation in the home straight and they will boosted by the news that Aguero has overcome the groin injury he suffered in the 3-2 victory over Everton.
The Argentine striker was forced off at Goodison Park and subsequently missed the victory over Crystal Palace and the 4-0 destruction of Aston Villa on Wednesday that has left them in the driving seat to secure their second league title in three years.
Edin Dzeko has done an admirable job leading the line for City in the absence of the Argentine, but it will come as great comfort for the Manchester club to have Aguero available for selection once again, given his final day heroics two years ago, as he scored a last minute winner against Queens Park Rangers to secure their maiden Premier League trophy.
He has overcome his groin injury to be able to take part, should Manuel Pellegrini decide to utilise him, though he will be wary of wrecking Aguero’s World Cup dream if he aggravates the injury again, with the striker almost certain to be part of Argentina’s plans for the summer showpiece in Brazil this summer.
