Manchester United Vs. Manchester City, 2011 Community Shield: Sergio Aguero To Make Bench And Other Fitness News

Sergio Aguero reportedly picked up some blisters on his feet following his move from Atletico Madrid to Manchester City, but by all accounts he's back in training with City, and he's expected to make the bench, but not start the 2011 Community Shield against Manchester United on Sunday. His fellow new signings Gael Clichy and Stefan Savic should be in the 18-man squad, but in an unknown capacity. 

Manchester United are without a couple of players for sure, as both Michael Carrick and 'Chicharito' Javier Hernandez will miss out. Antonio Valencia, Rafael and Darren Fletcher have returned to full training for United after picking up injuries, but all are borderline for making the 18 on Sunday.

As for City, Carlos Tevez will be out of the game for sure. He's being allowed to take an extended leave from the team following the 2011 Copa America and will be joining the team for training on Monday.
