PHOTO: Aguero reveals what he did as Liverpool prepared to kick off

Samir Nasri & Sergio Aguero with Premier League Trophy

Manchester City will have known the importance of Liverpool's match against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, but what was their star-striker doing?

'Tranquility'.

That was what Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero wrote to accompany the picture above; the one he posted on his Instagram account just as Liverpool were preparing to kick off against Tottenham Hotspur in a match that would play a huge part in the Premier League title race.

Perhaps the Argentine striker was back in time to watch the game, or perhaps he had no intention of putting himself through what could be termed a form of torture for those knowing only one result would be a good result...at least for the Blues.

I have always wondered how footballers deal with the pressure of matches they cannot influence; the ones their rivals take part in and they can only watch from afar.

But it seems for one player at least, the pull of a warm Spring afternoon was more enticing than the prospect of 90 minutes that he had absolutely no say over.

And considering what happened after just two of those minutes, that was probably wise.

 

Who do you think will win the title this season?
