Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will miss Saturday’s derby against Manchester United in the Premier League after being banned for three games.
Argentina international Aguero is also suspended for miss City’s home league game with Bournemouth on 17 September and the EFL Cup third-round match at Swansea on 21 September.
Aguero has scored three goals in three league games this season for City, who are top of the table with a 100% record.
He also scored a hat-trick in the first leg of their 5-0 Champions League qualifier against Steaua Bucharest.
City contested the violent conduct charge and argued that “the standard punishment would be clearly excessive”.
