Manchester City FC striker Sergio Aguero will miss Saturday’s derby against Manchester United in the Premier League after being banned for three games.

A Football Association panel found the 28-year-old Aguero guilty of violent conduct after he elbowed West Ham’s Winston Reid in City’s 3-1 Premier League win on Sunday.

Argentina international Aguero is also suspended for miss City’s home league game with Bournemouth on Sept. 17 and the EFL Cup third-round match at Swansea on Sept. 21.

They are top of the table with a 100 per cent record.

City contested the violent conduct charge and argued that “the standard punishment would be clearly excessive’’.
