The Argentine has been absent for almost three weeks since hobbling off against Stoke on New Year's Day, but has been given the all-clear to return against the CottagersEXCLUSIVE

Sergio Aguero is set to make his return for Manchester City in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Fulham, Goal.com can reveal.
Aguero has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since limping out of City’s 3-0 win over Stoke at the Etihad Stadium on New Year's Day.
The Argentine missed his side’s FA Cup third round win over Watford as a result, though it was initially hoped he would be fit to participate in Sunday’s crunch clash with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
But prior to kick-off boss Roberto Mancini revealed his star man would not be risked against the Gunners, with City nevertheless emerging 2-0 victors thanks to goals from James Milner and Edin Dzeko.
Aguero last week underwent intensive treatment in Italy for the injury but has since rejoined his team-mates, who have been training indoors to escape the cold weather.
And City’s medical department have now given the 24-year-old the all-clear to appear against the Cottagers, handing Mancini a timely boost as he looks to chase down title rivals Manchester United.
