Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero had to be substituted during his side’s ongoing Premier League clash against Everton.
The Argentina international striker has endured an injury-ravaged season and has been restricted to just 21 appearances in the league.
The 25-year-old appeared to have sustained a recurrence of his groin problem during this evening’s game at Goodison Park and was substituted soon after.
Aguero started for City against the Toffees and equalised for the visitors on 21 minutes when he shot home from inside the box after being played in by Yaya Toure.
However, the former Independiente man appeared to be struggling while he was celebrating, and minutes later he called for City’s medical team.
It was then decided that Aguero would not be able to carry on playing and was replaced by midfielder Fernandinho on 26 minutes.
City are expected to make an announcement on the extent of Aguero’s injury later this evening, but he could be doubtful for Manuel Pellegrini’s side's final two Premier League games of the season.
City will host Aston Villa this coming Wednesday before wrapping up the 2013-14 campaign with a match against West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium next Sunday.
