Manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed Sergio Aguero is not available for Manchester City's match against Brighton in the English Premier League on Wednesday.
The Argentina striker missed the FA Cup third-round win over Birmingham on Sunday after being asked to isolate as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
“Quarantine, isolated — the rules. After nine or 10 days he will be back,” Guardiola said at a news conference.
It is yet another setback for Aguero, whose return from knee surgery this season has already been complicated by further pain in the joint and a hamstring injury.
Aguero has not started a game since October but had been expected to feature last weekend.
