Sergio Aguero is back training with his Manchester City team-mates, after suffering a broken rib in a car accident.
Aguero makes a quick return, after being injured in a car crash in Amsterdam, at the end of September.
He was expected to be out of action for two to four weeks, but the 29-year-old was hopeful of getting back to full fitness sooner.
City confirmed on Tuesday that Aguero participated in light training with team-mates not away on international duty, stating that the striker is “expected to gradually build up his fitness in the coming days as he edges towards a first team return”.
It is not certain if he will be fit enough to feature against Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
