EPL: Aguero out of Spurs game

Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero has undergone a minor knee surgery due to an injury sustained in a heavy tackle from Manchester United full-back Ashley Young.

The Argentine ace has netted 30 times in all competitions for Premier League Champions, Man City despite being off for a month with a knee problem.

He returned to action as a substitute in the derby defeat to Manchester United on April 7, and was on the receiving end of a rash challenge in the penalty area from Ashley Young that went unpunished by referee Martin Atkinson.

Aguero made another brief cameo appearance during City's vain attempt at a Champions League comeback against Liverpool last week, but manager Pep Guardiola ruled the 29-year-old out of Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham, citing Young's challenge as the cause of the injury.

With the top-flight title now secure, he looks set for another period of rehabilitation. 

"Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee," Aguero tweeted. "Fully motivated to get back soon to the field."
