Manuel Pellegrini is confident that his Manchester City side will be able to beat Roma in the Champions League on Wednesday without Sergio Aguero.

The striker sustained a knee injury in the early stages of Saturday's 1-0 Premier League victory over Everton and looks set to be sidelined for a lengthy spell.

Aguero will be a major loss for City as the 26-year-old has scored 19 goals this season and has helped Pellegrini's side keep on the coat-tails of Chelsea.

However, City are in a rich vein of form and have won five games in a row since the international break, Saturday's victory coming courtesy of Yaya Toure's first-half penalty.

Pellegrini said: "It is one thing that a player can be in a very good moment as Sergio was until this but I don't think he has carried us.

"We have beaten a very difficult team like Everton without Sergio, without (David) Silva, without (Vincent) Kompany, without (Stevan) Jovetic and with (Edin) Dzeko only able to play 20 minutes.

"Every big team must have important players like Sergio. We would prefer to play with Sergio but if he cannot play we must try to continue the same way we have been playing in the last week.

"Remember, last season we played a lot of games without Sergio - and these are the same players and the same team."

Late decisions will be made on whether Vincent Kompany and David Silva will be fit enough to face Roma.
