Manchester City top scorer Sergio Aguero misses tonight's Barclays Premier League clash with title rivals Chelsea as he begins an anticipated month-long spell out.

Aguero, who has a hamstring injury, joins playmaker Samir Nasri (knee) on the sidelines while midfielder Javi Garcia is also out with a knock.

Midfielder James Milner could be back in contention after a groin problem.

For Chelsea, new signing Mohamed Salah could be included in the matchday squad.

The Egypt winger trained with his new team-mates on Friday for the first time since joining from Basel.

Striker Fernando Torres (knee) remains out, while midfielder Marco van Ginkel (knee) is a long-term absentee.
