Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini hopes a knock sustained by Sergio Aguero in a 5-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur is not too serious.

The Chilean tactician is, however, confident that City can cope should their top marksman be forced back onto the treatment table.

Aguero, who netted his 26th goal of the season and his 50th in Premier League competition for the Blues, limped off at White Hart Lane shortly before half-time.

It remains to be seen how long a hamstring complaint will sideline the Argentine striker for and Pellegrini is reluctant to speculate until he has all of the facts.

He said: "We will see tomorrow (Thursday) with the doctor.

"He has an injured hamstring so we will have to see how serious it is. We won't have any indications until tomorrow.

"Sergio is a top player but we don't depend on just one player so we hope it's the moment where Stevan Jovetic can play and hope that Sergio can join us again as soon as possible."
