Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is back on the training pitch following his recovery from a thigh injury. The Argentinian international has missed the last six games.
It remains to be seen whether the 31-year-old will be fit enough to face Leicester on Saturday but supporters on Twitter are very pleased to see the forward return to fitness:

Aguero may have a fight on his hands to get his place back in the side, though, with Gabriel Jesus having performed so well in recent games.
The Brazilian has bagged five goals in his last four games, including a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb last week.
Manager Pep Guardiola will, though, be delighted to have Aguero back as another option up front, and if he is fit to play this weekend, he may well start him in what will be a big game against Leicester at the Etihad Stadium.
