Aguero is expected to be in the starting XI for Manchester City's Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday after coming off the bench in Wednesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich. "Maybe Sergio in this moment is not ready to play three games in a row in just one week," manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday. "That's why I thought it was better for him and the squad for him not to play 90 minutes against Bayern. He is fresh for Sunday and I'm sure he will make a difference."

With Stevan Jovetic ruled out with a hamstring injury, Aguero will draw the start ahead of Edin Dzeko, who is dealing with a back injury himself. Aguero has three goals in four appearances this season.

Aguero scored in the 28th minute of Manchester City's 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.

With Stevan Jovetic sidelined with a thigh injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini chose to start Aguero up front alone, with Edin Dzeko replacing him after 66 minutes. Aguero now has three goals in four matches this season and he'll look to keep it going at home next Sunday against Chelsea.

Aguero is in the starting XI for Manchester City's Premier League match against Stoke City on Saturday.

With Edin Dzeko a little banged up, Aguero will get the start, although manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday that he isn't sure how many minutes Aguero will be able to play. Regardless of how many it is, Aguero has shown he can be a force in an instant, as he has a goal in both of City's league matches this season off the bench.

Aguero is fit to face Stoke City on Saturday, but manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday "we'll see tomorrow how many minutes he will play."

Aguero has come off the bench for both of Man City's Premier League matches this season, although he's netted in each. With Stevan Jovetic healthy and Edin Dzeko fit following a boot to the thigh Monday against Liverpool, Pellegrini has no reason to force Aguero to play the full 90.

Aguero came on for Edin Dzeko in the 68th minute and scored a goal 23 seconds later in Manchester City's 3-1 win over Liverpool on Monday.

Aguero was delayed in training following a long run at the World Cup with Argentina, but that has hardly limited his fantasy value through two Premier League matches. While he doesn't get many points for his substitute appearances, two goals in two matches could pave the way for a move into the starting XI on Saturday against Stoke City.

Aguero came on for Edin Dzeko in the 83rd minute and then scored two minutes into stoppage time of Manchester City's 2-0 win at Newcastle on Sunday.

Aguero was held out of the starting XI after just recently returning to training following a long World Cup run with Argentina, but he seemed plenty fit in his limited time off the bench. Aguero said earlier this week that he may not be 100 percent until the third week of the season, so it wouldn't be overly surprising to see him start on the bench for City's next match, which comes next Monday against Liverpool

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday that he is unsure if Aguero will play Sunday against Newcastle. "He has had so many months without playing normally so we are trying to make a mix for him: a mix of pre-season training and trying to get him to our level to play for the team," manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "We will see on Sunday. I am not so sure if he will or will not."

Aguero is one of the Premier League's best scorers when he's fit, but that is something that plagued him last season. After playing for Argentina in the World Cup, he was delayed in preseason training for Manchester City, so it's entirely possible that Pellegrini could use him off the bench in the first few weeks of the season. If that happens, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic could start up front.

Aguero said he is still working his way back to fitness following the World Cup and he may not be 100 percent until the third week of the season, the club's official web site reports.

Aguero is a threat to score any time he is on the pitch, but it may be a few weeks before he's in the starting XI. If he begins Sunday's match on the bench, Stevan Jovetic could get the call up front with Edin Dzeko.
