The forward was due to fly home on Wednesday following the 4-2 defeat and take part in his scheduled session with Pep Guardiola’s squad. Agüero was taken to hospital in the Russian city as a precaution, with the club later stating that Agüero had encountered a “dizzy spell”.

City have been training all week with those players away on international duty returning to the sessions when they arrive back. There is no requirement for Agüero to have his return to training interrupted and the 29-year-old is expected to be available for selection for the Premier League game at Leicester City on Saturday.

Agüero is City’s joint top-scorer this season with 10 goals in 12 appearances.
