The 30-year-old forward is expected to return to Pep Guardiola’s starting line-up this weekend after being rested for City’s emphatic 6-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk.
Gabriel Jesus netted a hat-trick against the Ukrainian side in midweek but is still expected to lose his place to Aguero.
Aguero joined Wayne Rooney, Thierry Henry, Andrew Cole, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Frank Lampard, Jermain Defoe and Alan Shearer in scoring 150 Premier League goals when he netted against Southampton last weekend.
Pep Guardiola played down the importance of Sunday’s derby match during his pre-match press conference.
Asked if it was the most important fixture of the season he replied: ‘No, no, no. Games against the contenders are special because if you win they don’t win but we are in November.
‘Maybe the game at Old Trafford will be more important. We’re on a good run, United as well.’
Guardiola conceded that rivalries in La Liga are more boisterous than in England but reckons there will be an edge at the Etihad Stadium given United’s recent upturn.
‘All the derbies are special,’ he added. ‘Spain there is more noise than here but it’s special here.
‘When United have the ball and the people in front – wow – they can create something. They have incredible amount of talent up front and in the middle as well.
‘That is why we have to defend deep and strong, defend the crosses, avoid set pieces as they are huge and far better than us.’
