Manchester - Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero admits he is excited about the prospect of facing off against his future teammate Gabriel Jesus.

Argentina take on Brazil in a crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier with the teenage striker set to take centre stage alongside Neymar.

"It will be a pleasure to play against Gabriel Jesus. He is an excellent forward and will be a great team mate," he told Goal.

While admitting he's excited about the prospect of playing against the 19-year-old, the former Atletico Madrid man also mentioned the recent media rumble of his exclusion from Pep Guardiola's starting XI.

"I arrived to Manchester [after international break] and I wasn't well so I didn't start against Everton. 

"Me and Pep talked about it, that when you come with something in your head, it influences you in the game."
