MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Argentina striker Sergio Aguero will return from a month out with a calf injury in Manchester City's third-round replay against Blackburn in the FA Cup on Wednesday.

Aguero, who last played on Dec. 14, was training as normal and was in the squad for the match at Etihad Stadium, City manager Manuel Pellegrini said on Tuesday.

City has won seven of its eight games during the absence of Aguero, who has 19 goals this season.

Sweden striker John Guidetti was loaned out by City to fellow Premier League team Stoke on Tuesday for the rest of the season.
