Reigning European champions Liverpool have been handed a major transfer boost in their pursuit of a first league title in almost three decades following the injury sustained by the star striker of big contenders, Manchester City.
The Premier League champions are seen as the major challenger to the Reds’ quest of ending their title drought and they were dealt a major injury blow with the injury to star striker Sergio Aguero.
Argentine international Sergio Aguero sustained a muscular injury during the last league game and will miss the next three to four weeks of football as a result.
Aguero suffered the injury during the Chelsea game at home at the weekend.

Despite the setback, Manchester City were able to beat Chelsea 2-1 to close the gap to league leaders Liverpool to within nine points.
Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez scored the goals for hosts Manchester City to overturn the deficit from Chelsea Midfielder N’Golo Kante’s opening strike with all the strikers coming in the first half.
Manchester City have won the last two Premier League titles but they face a big battle to make it three wins in a row with Liverpool currently setting the pace after 13 games.
The Citizens have had to deal with injuries to key players like Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane.
