Aguero could face a three-match ban, including City's Premier League games with Manchester United on September 10th and Bournemouth on 17 September.

The 28-year-old would also miss the EFL Cup third-round game against Swansea.

Aguero is out of Argentina's two World Cup 2018 qualifiers next month with a calf injury.

Referee Andre Marriner did not see the 76th-minute incident during City's 3-1 win at the weekend and the FA has decided to take retrospective action after reviewing television footage.

Aguero has until tomorrow to respond.
