Despite later picking up his winners medal with a bandaged knee, the striker is adamant he will be fine for the upcoming clash with close rivals United on March 8
United have hosted City 22 times and won 10, drawn five and lost seven.
And Aguero is keeping a cool outlook ahead of next Sunday's clash despite being taken off late in the game.
The ace was with a wrapping of ice on his leg after the final whistle, with blood spotted streaming through the bandages.
After the match, he told reporters: ''I'm OK, just a kick on my knee, I'm fine."
Pep Guardiola's men won the competition for the third year in a row, thanks to goals from Aguero and Rodri.
Aguero added: ''The goal, for me, it's important when the team is winning, so I am so happy for the goal but I am happy because we are winning the cup."
The Carabao Cup is City's first trophy this season, although they beat Liverpool in the Community Shield in August.
They face Sheffield United in the FA Cup on Wednesday before taking on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
