• Rib injury suffered by Sergio Agüero in Amsterdam car crash on 28 September
• Striker now in training and Pep Guardiola hopes he can face Stoke

Sergio Agüero is hopeful of being available for Manchester City’s home game with Stoke City on Saturday in what would be a surprise early return from the rib injury the striker suffered in a car crash less than two weeks ago.

Agüero broke a rib in Amsterdam when the vehicle taking him to the airport after a pop concert crashed into a pole on 28 September, two days before City won 1-0 at Chelsea in their final match before the international break. The Argentinian was expected to be ruled out for around six weeks yet it is understood he will undergo a late fitness test before the Stoke game.

• Agüero needs one goal to equal Eric Brook’s Manchester City scoring record
• Argentinian likely to be rejoined by Gabriel Jesus against Shakhtar Donetsk

Sergio Agüero needs one more goal to equal Eric Brook’s 78-year-old Manchester City scoring record and there are not many people at the club who imagine the Argentinian is going to hang around for long on his present tally of 176.

No one is a bigger fan of the striker than Kyle Walker, who says it a joy to be playing behind Agüero after years of struggling to contain him.

Pep Guardiola: ‘We are doing many things now that we didn’t do last season’

Sergio Agüero has been left feeling like a second-class Citizen | Daniel Taylor

Pep Guardiola’s treatment of the still prolific striker, who is closing in on the Manchester City scoring record, has been mystifying

It isn’t easy sometimes understanding why Pep Guardiola gives the impression that he is never fully satisfied with Sergio Agüero, and it is even more perplexing when we cannot be too far away from the Argentinian going into the record books as the most prolific scorer in Manchester City’s history.

As it stands, Agüero’s 170 goals in their colours leave him seven short of the highest total and, to put it into context, it took the record holder, Eric Brook, 11 years to accumulate that number, from 1928 to 1939. Agüero is just starting his seventh season in Manchester and is almost there already.

‘An electrifying jolt’: how Agüero’s goal sealed Premier League’s global rise

Not just a moment to remember, Manchester City’s thrilling late title win in 2012 embodied the Premier League’s ascent to international dominance

The big bang: how the Premier League was born

It’s 4.53pm BST on 13 May 2012. The score at the Etihad Stadium is 2-2 between Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers and the game is into a fourth minute of added time. The Italian international Mario Balotelli has the ball on the edge of the QPR area. Slipping, he pokes a pass beyond two defenders into the box. His team-mate, a £38m recruit from Atlético Madrid the previous summer, manages to read the pass. With one touch, Sergio Agüero eludes a despairing final challenge. With a second, he fires the ball past Paddy Kenny. Flying into the near corner of the net, Agüero’s goal wins the game in the final second. It also means the 20th Premier League title goes to City, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.
