LONDON (REUTERS) - Sergio Aguero is set to return up front for Manchester City against Arsenal on Sunday as Roberto Mancini's side aim to shrug off the midweek Champions League defeat by Real Madrid.

Midfielder Samir Nasri will miss the trip to his former club, however, after suffering a hamstring injury against Real.

Argentinian Aguero has not played since injuring his knee on the opening weekend of the Premier League season against Southampton but was an unused substitute in the Bernabeu on Tuesday when City conceded twice late on to lose 2-3.

"Sergio is fit," Mancini told a news conference on Friday."I wanted to put him on in the Bernabeu but we had a couple of injuries."
