Aguero absence not an issue for Man City - Chelsea's Mourinho

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes Sergio Aguero's injury is not a massive problem for Manchester City.

The Argentine ace, who has netted 15 times in the league this season, will miss Monday night's clash between the two sides because of a hamstring injury but Mourinho is of the belief that there are plenty of capable strikers in Manuel Pellegrini's squad who can do the job.

"He's a fantastic player, but he's one of so many," Mourinho said.

"Even the fourth striker (Stevan Jovetic), coming off the bench, comes on and scores (in Wednesday's 5-1 win at Tottenham).

"For the last months Sergio was injured and the third striker, (Edin) Dzeko, was making the difference and scoring a lot of goals.

"So for them it's not important if somebody is injured."
