"Quarantine. [We will follow] the rules, when after nine or ten days he will be back," said Guardiola on Aguero's availability. 

Guardiola also revealed that Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake remain on the sidelines with injuries while Eric Garcia and Cole Palmer are still in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19. 

"Laporte is injured, Nathan is injured. Eric is solitary, Cole palmer is solitary. The rest maybe I forget someone but the rest are okay."

Raheem Sterling has no injury concern after he was left out of the matchday squad against Birmingham City.
