Man City to contest Aguero violent conduct charge

Manchester City are set to appeal the violent conduct charge given to Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine striker was retrospectively charged by the FA for an alleged elbow on West Ham United's Winston Reid from the Premier League fixture at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Referee Andre Marriner missed the incident on the day but a review panel felt Aguero should have received a red card, prompting the charge.

However, Sky Sports suggests that City want to contest the charge and it is understood that an Independent Commission will meet on Friday to consider the Aguero case.

The 28-year-old, who already has three Premier League goals this season, could miss three matches if found guilty, including the derby with Manchester United at Old Trafford on September 10.
