Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could make his comeback against Arsenal on Monday as he started training again on Wednesday.
Aguero has spent the last three weeks on the sidelines after injuring his heel during City’s 3-1 win over Southampton on November 28.
In the time that he has been out, Aguero has missed City’s matches against Hull, Stoke City, Borussia MG and Swansea City.
"Sergio Aguero has handed City a major boost ahead of Monday's crucial top-of-the-table clash with Arsenal," a statement on the club's official website said. "On Wednesday morning, he returned to normal training with the full squad ahead of one of the most important matches for the Blues so far this campaign.
"Provided there is no reaction, Manuel Pellegrini will hope to have Aguero available for the trip to the Emirates Stadium."
The news about Aguero will give City fans a reason to smile as the 27-year-old has scored nine goals in 12 appearances in all competitions so far this season.
