Guardiola tells Jesus to deal with his mum returning to Brazil as Aguero returns for Man City

PEP Guardiola should have Sergio Aguero back for the Wolves game on Monday – but he has raised concerns about Jesus missing his mum.

The Manchester City forward was struck down with flu after the thrilling win over Liverpool at the Etihad a week ago.

It meant he had to sit out the cup double against Rotherham and Burton – with Gabriel Jesus scoring five times in his absence.

But Aguero returned to training on Thursday and looks certain to be back in contention for the visit of Nuno Esporito Santo's men.

Boss Pep Guardiola said: "Sergio was sick after the game against Liverpool, Thursday was the first training session.

"Vincent Kompany is recovering well after the game against Liverpool, he's getting better. The rest are OK. I hope they'll be OK for Monday."

Meanwhile Guardiola has told Jesus he must deal with the departure of his mother and brothers following their stay over Christmas in Manchester.

The Brazilian admits their visit has helped him recover his form – scoring seven in four starts while they have been here.

Now they have headed back to South America and Guardiola says the club will support him – but he has to handle it.

Pep said: "The players know they are in an incredible club who try to take care of all of us, all the people working in this organisation.
