Man City ace Aguero fighting to make Man Utd derby clash

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is desperate to make next week's derby against Manchester United.

The Daily Star says Aguero was charged on Tuesday for allegedly elbowing West Ham's Winston Reid on Sunday.

Aguero was given until 6pm yesterday to respond but that was extended because City officials were working on the exits of Samir Nasri, Joe Hart, Eliaquim Mangala and Wilfried Bony.

An independent panel will hear Aguero's defence tomorrow.

They will use video and written evidence but the 28-year-old will not appear.

If found guilty he faces a three-match ban that would rule him out of the derby clash on September 10.
