Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will contest a Football Association charge of violent conduct, British media reported on Thursday.

The Argentine striker appeared to elbow West Ham United defender Winston Reid during Sunday’s Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium, which City won 3-1.

If he is found guilty Aguero would be banned for three matches and would miss the Manchester derby at rivals United in the Premier League on Sept. 10.

He would also miss the Premier League clash with Bournemouth and a League Cup third-round tie against Swansea City.
