Manchester United manager and his supporters will be glad over the latest reports concerning Sergio Aguero’s injury.
The Argentine international was substituted by Pep Guardiola during their 2-1 victory over Chelsea last weekend after picking up a groin injury.
The good news for Manchester United fans is that the deadly striker won’t be available for selection when they tackle their noisy neighbors on the 7th of December.
According to Guardiola, the striker is set to be sidelined for some weeks which means he won’t play any role in Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.
The former Barcelona manager also confirmed that his deadly goal-poacher won’t be fit to face United during the much anticipated derby at the Etihad Stadium.

As for Solskjaer, the manager won’t be without the services of long-term absentee such as Eric Bailly, while Scott McTominay and Marcos Rojo might miss the game.
The manager is likely to welcome Paul Pogba back to his side before the encounter as reports suggested that the Frenchman is in the final lapse of his recovery process.
The Red Devils must record a positive result against their local rival to enhance their chances of being among the top four by the end of the season.
The race for next season’s Champions League competition is highly contested as seven clubs currently have equally chances of qualifying for the tournament judging by their positions on the League table.
