City medical staff have carried out further tests and informed Aguero that he will return in around two weeks.

"During yesterday's training I had a discomfort on my left knee", Aguero said on Twitter. "Now it's time for a full recovery!"

The striker, City's leading scorer this season with 30 goals, has indicated he will be out for around two weeks after suffering the injury on Saturday.

The 29-year-old isn't seriously injured and nothing is broken, but will play no part in Monday night's trip to Stoke City, meaning a start for Gabriel Jesus is likely.

Aguero is also a doubt for Argentina's World Cup warm-up friendlies against Italy and Spain on March 23 and 27 respectively.

Manchester City are in the unfamiliar position of needing to shrug off a defeat as they look to resume their title charge at Stoke.

It was their first loss at the Etihad Stadium in 15 months and Ukrainian defender Oleksandr Zinchenko believes it is vital he and his teammates learn from the Basel loss to help them ensure they have a strong end to the season.
