Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will miss the Manchester derby after being given a three-match ban for elbowing West Ham defender Winston Reid.
The Football Association found the Argentine guilty of violent conduct after he clashed with Reid in the 3-1 win at the Etihad on August 28th
City failed in an appeal to get the decision overturned and he will now miss the game against Manchester United on September 10th as well as the home clash with Bournemouth on Sept. 17 and EFL Cup tie at Swansea City four days later.
Aguero has made a superb start to the season, scoring six times in his first four appearances, including a hat trick in the Champions League playoff first leg against Steaua Bucharest.
His form has helped Guardiola’s side win their three opening Premier League games, with United and Chelsea the only other teams to have a 100 percent record.
