A novel idea to solve Manchester City's striker crisis: Play without a striker

Sergio Aguero's injury has left Manchester City with a problem in attack ahead of the busy Christmas period.

The City manager first feared Aguero, 26, could be ruled out for up to eight weeks after he suffered a knee ligament injury in the 1-0 win over Everton on Dec. 6, which would have kept him sidelined until February.
