Manchester City have been boosted by the news that leading scorer Sergio Aguero has returned to training following a knee ligament injury.

Aguero, who has scored 19 goals in 21 games for City this season, has not played since the start of December when he limped off against Everton.

However, the Argentine international has revealed he is back in training and closing on a comeback.

"I wanted you to know I’ve already started field work. Slowly but surely I’ll be back at the right moment," Aguero said on Twitter. "Thanks for the wishes!"

Aguero is unlikely to feature for joint-leaders City against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday, but could make his return against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on January 18.
