Sergio Aguero and David Silva Named in Manchester City's Squad to Face Bayern
David Silva and Sergio Aguero have been declared fit for Manchester City's crunch Champions League clash with reigning champions Bayern Munich.
According to the club's official website, Manuel Pellegrini commented on both players: "David is in the squad for Bayern and I think he will play some part tomorrow. Sergio Aguero is also fit and in the squad."
The Spaniard has missed the past month with a thigh injury whilst Aguero picked up a knock that ruled him out of the shock weekend defeat to Aston Villa.
The news is a huge boost for City boss Pellegrini as his side look to recapture the form that saw them thump neighbours United 4-1.
As reported by David Lynch of the Manchester Evening News, Pellegrini added that he expected his side to bounce back from the Villa loss:
Of course, I always expect a big response from the players.
We respect the Champions League very well and it is very important for us to continue against the most difficult team in the group.
I am sure we will see a very high performance tomorrow.
Predict the result: Man City vs. Bayern Munich.
A win for City would see them claim top spot outright. They are currently level with Bayern at the top of Group D after they both won their opening matches 3-0.
Silva has been instrumental since making the move to Manchester. He looked to have started this season in the same manner with an excellent midfield display on the opening day against Newcastle, before he picked up an injury on international duty.
Aguero has bagged four goals already this campaign and played a pivotal role in the Manchester derby with two goals—the first a remarkable volley that saw the Argentine swivel his body to steer an awkward cross into the corner.
Despite qualifying for the Champions League for the past two seasons, City have struggled—in part due to a weak UEFA club coefficient that affects their seeding—and have not progressed past the group stage.
City met Munich in the preseason Audi Cup, where a controversial penalty decision helped turn the match in the German sides' favour as they ran out 2-1 winners.
