Man City’s star striker Aguero returns against Liverpool but Klopp’s ready

Date Posted,December 29, 2016

Sergio Aguero is back from suspension on Saturday to help Manchester City try to end their Anfield misery.

Aguero has completed the four-match ban he received for his appalling challenge on David Luiz in City’s 3-1 home defeat to Chelsea on December 4.

City’s star striker is set to go straight back into Pep Guardiola’s starting line-up as the Blues look for their first win at Anfield since 2003.

Despite winning at the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham, Liverpool remains the one club at which City have failed to triumph since Sheikh Mansour’s 2008 takeover revolutionised the under-achieving club.

City have not been victorious on any of their previous 14 visits to Anfield, while Aguero has also drawn a personal blank, having never found the back of the net there.

Aguero, City’s top scorer this season with 16 goals, has served two bans this season, but Guardiola’s men have coped without him, winning six and losing just one of the seven games he has missed.

But the return of the Argentina striker, one of the best in the world, is still a major boost for City ahead of a game that could play a significant role in the context of the title race.
