Aguero back to full fitness - Pellegrini

The Manchester City boss admits the Argentine 'wasn't 100 per cent' against West Ham, while Vincent Kompany is set to return from a calf injury against Tottenham Manuel Pellegrini insists Sergio Aguero is back to full fitness ahead of Manchester City's encounter with Tottenham on Saturday.

The Argentine finished as the Premier League's top scorer with 26 goals last season but has only found the net once in the league this term.

Aguero also netted a penalty in City's 4-1 victory over Sunderland in the League Cup on Tuesday and Pellegrini backs the striker improve on his subdued start to the campaign.

"Maybe after his injury against West Ham, Aguero wasn't 100 per cent but now I believe he is," said the City manager. "He's an important player."
Vincent Kompany is also set to return from a calf injury to face Spurs but David Silva has been ruled out.

"At this moment, [Eliaquim] Mangala, [Gael] Clichy, [Fabian] Delph, Silva, [Wilfried] Bony and Kelechi [Iheanacho] are the six players injured.

Kompany, [Joe] Hart & [Samir] Nasri are back," said Pellegrini.

"It's important to have Vincent back. He's just recovering, he's the captain and he played very well at the start of the season."
