'Aguero dived' – Pep's Sarcastic Jibe on Young Tackle

Pep Guardiola sarcastically suggested that Sergio Aguero dived after a crunching tackle from Ashley Young during the Manchester derby at the weekend, when asked about the Argentine's fitness.

Man City face the mammoth task of overturning a 3-0 first-leg deficit when they face Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday and a fit Aguero would provide a much-needed boost to their hopes.

Guardiola, however, offered little in the way of an update when asked if the striker would be fit after his clash with Young.

“He (Aguero) was diving,” the boss quipped at the pre-match press conference.

Pep went on to add that City will need the "perfect game" against the Reds if they are to save their Champions League campaign.

He said: "Of course, to go through you have to make almost the perfect game, create a lot of chances, be clinical, and the chances we're going to receive, defend well and the keeper save it."
