MANCHESTER -- Manchester City's Gael Clichy has been ruled out for up to seven weeks with an ankle problem, while Wilfried Bony is on crutches after suffering an injury in training.

Clichy has yet to play this season, with Aleksandar Kolarov in fine form at left-back, and was expected back soon.

But he has suffered a setback, which should mean the Serb has an extended run in the team.

Ivorian striker Bony revealed he had been hurt in training when he posted an Instagram picture of himself wearing...

Sergio Aguero the Premier League's best and ready to spark title surge

Sergio Aguero is as good as Luis Suarez, according to new Manchester City teammate Raheem Sterling.

Should you take on the considerable challenge of trying to list each Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Season since 1992-93, don't bother entering Sergio Aguero's name. In four seasons of eligibility, he has yet to make the grade.

It's a glaring error of omission for Aguero, who could easily lay claim to being the best striker in England throughout his four years at Manchester City, with 79 goals in just 122 Premier League matches. He has a scoring rate of 111.5 minutes per goal...
