Aguero breaks long standing Hat trick Record.


Aguero breaks long standing Hat trick Record.

Manchester City Talisman, Sergio Aguero has equalled a Premier League record after scoring three goals in Manchester City’s 6-0 thrashing of Chelsea.

It was Aguero second in a week following his heroics against Arsenal who lost by 3 – 1 against table toppers.

The Argentine has matched Alan Shearer’s record in the competition, record that was kept for 11 years.

City went four goals up after just 25 minutes when Ilkay Gundogan struck soon after that, but Aguero was not finished, stepping up to convert his hat-trick goal from the penalty spot after Sterling was brought down by Cesar Azpilicueta.

Aguero was substituted to a standing ovation before Sterling added City’s sixth, his place in the history books already assured.

As well as being level with Shearer for hat-tricks, Aguero is ahead of Premier League greats Robbie Fowler (nine), Thierry Henry, Harry Kane, Michael Owen (all eight and Wayne Rooney (seven).
