Sergio Aguero sidelined for up to six weeks

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will be out for up to six weeks with a knee ligament injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini said on the eve of their Champions League clash at AS Roma.

Argentine Aguero, the Premier League`s leading scorer with 14 goals, hobbled off after less than five minutes against Everton on Saturday.

"He will be out for four to six weeks," Pellegrini tod a news conference on Tuesday. "It will depend on his recovery. But our team doesn`t depend on one player."

City can qualify for the last 16 if they win in Rome on Wednesday and CSKA Moscow do not beat Bayern Munich.

Pellegrini`s side only have five points from their five Champions League games but can reach the knockout stage behind group winners Bayern Munich if everything goes their way.
