Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that striker Sergio Aguero will only be back in November after suffering an injury when on international duty.
The Argentinean joins Gael Clichy, Fabian Delph and David Silva on the sidelines with defenders Vincent Kompany and Aleksandar Kolarov back for today's Champions League game against Sevilla.
"Vincent [Kompany] was fit for the last game, Aleksandar [Kolarov] is fit so is in the squad list. Clichy, Delph, Aguero and Silva are injured," Pellegrini told reporters.
"Aguero is out for a month - maybe next week Clichy, Delph and Silva will be fit.
"Maybe everyone thought that Sevilla would be better in the Spanish League at this moment.
"Maybe they didn't start well but they beat Barcelona so it's not easy. I spoke with the players this morning, we are sure we will play against the real Sevilla tomorrow – it's different to the domestic league.
"I am sure we will see them qualified for the next Champions League at the end of the season. They are an important team."
