Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola have revealed why his team have been having a bad season after another draw against West Ham United.
The citizens poor start to the Premier League season continued with a 1-1 draw at West Ham United on Saturday, a match in which Sergio Aguero left at halftime.
Aguero left the match at halftime, having returned from a long-term injury in Tuesday’s Champions League defeat of Porto.
Guardiola was skeptical of Aguero leaving the pitch he noted that Argentine striker might have suffered another muscular problem.
Speaking on the injury, the Spaniard said vaguely, “It looks like a muscular injury,”
A clearly frustrated Guardiola tried to explain his side’s 2W-2D-1L start to the season.
“I’m not a guy who can predict the future,” Guardiola said. “We’ve already dropped seven points, which is a lot. But we’ve struggled a lot for many reasons. We have to take things game by game and see what happens.”
If Aguero is lost for significant time and any of their PL title rivals find their footing, City may well kiss its title hopes goodbye.
City is two weeks away from its first meeting with Liverpool, which comes after Tuesday at Marseille, Halloween at Sheffield United, and a Nov. 3 visit from Olympiacos
