Milner insists Man City can beat Roma without Aguero

Manchester City midfielder James Milner insists they can beat Champions League opponents AS Roma without Sergio Aguero.

Aguero limped off with damaged ligaments in his left knee just 75 seconds into the 1-0 victory over Everton after tangling with Toffees midfielder Muhamed Besic.

Milner said: "People can say whatever they want if they think we're a one-man team. Some people have been saying Chelsea had won the league 10 games in and here we are with a three-point gap.

"Losing Aguero will be a big miss. He is a world-class player, one of the best on the planet, and has been absolutely outstanding so the injury has come at a bad time.

"Sergio is very, very difficult to replace but we have a lot of firepower. With the players we do have up there I'm not too worried.

"Edin coming back is a positive and he's a fantastic goalscorer. Hopefully Stevan should be available (for Roma) as well. We have a fantastic squad of players."
