Aguero's return from injury may light up Manchester City

"I still do not know if I am going to play on Saturday", Aguero told TyC Sports.

Kane, who had failed to score a single goal in August, as has been the unusual case throughout the whole of his professional career so far, beat the likes of City's Sergio Aguero and De Bruyne, United's Romelu Lukaku, Brighton's Pascal Gross, Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles and Chelsea hitman Alvaro Morata to the prize.

"He is still injured", Guardiola said. "He'll notice how he feels and when he'll be able".

The Argentine suffered the injury when the taxi he was travelling in veered off the road and collided with a post during a break in Amsterdam ahead of his worldwide commitments with Argentina.

Guardiola maintained City's most pressing injury concern is Benjamin Mendy's long-term absence following cruciate knee ligament surgery.

Guardiola was asked about the possibility of another move for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, but he said firmly: "The window is closed now".

#PEP: The transfer window is closed now, we will see if we can add in January, the problem we have is the @benmendy23 injury. The only problem we have - a big, big problem we have - is Mendy, six months out.

"We will see about January, we are in October". It's a big problem for us. "Mendy was and is so important for us and six months a long time".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for September.

City also boast an impressive record against Stoke, particularly on their own turf, as they have only lost one of their previous 11 home matches against the Potters.
