Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is expected to be fit immediately after the November international break, says his club manager Pep Guardiola.
Aguero, 32, suffered a hamstring strain against West Ham in October which has kept him out of the previous two games.
Guardiola says he will not rush back the Argentine – who previously spent four months out with a knee problem – for Sunday’s match with Liverpool.
“I feel sure after the international break he will be better,” he said.
“He’s getting better but I don’t know. We don’t want him to have a setback but he’s getting better.”
Aguero’s fellow striker Gabriel Jesus has returned to training before Tuesday’s Champions League tie with Olympiakos.
City are top of Group C after two matches, following victories over Porto and Marseille.
