Sergio Aguero Injury Forces Striker Off

Well that's not good news for Manchester City. Less than ten minutes into their first Premier League match of the 2012/13 season, last season's hero Sergio Aguero is off the pitch at the Eithad Stadium. The Argentinian striker, whose last-gasp goal against Queens Park Rangers won the title for City, went into a tackle with Southampton right back Nathaniel Clyne and came out not very well at all, twisting his knee awkwardly as he went down.

Aguero ended up being treated for some time by the City medical staff, and although signs were initially promising as he was able to hobble to the sidelines, a few minutes later the stretcher was recalled and he was carried off down the tunnel. Edin Dzeko will replace him in this match, but if that injury is as serious as it looks right now, Roberto Mancini's going to have a bit of a problem. Good thing he has four excellent centre forwards in his squad.
