Sergio Aguero sets incredible record in Manchester City's 6-1 victory
When Sergio Aguero decides to hang up his cleats, he'll go down as one of the best strikers in English Premier League history. There's simply no other way to put it.
While his league-winning goal against QPR in 2012 stands out, he's provided Manchester City fans with countless other memories and amazing goals. Well, in City's 6-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, the Argentine star netted three goals, giving him 177 for his EPL career. This is a new all-time high for overseas players, passing Thierry Henry.
Aguero's first goal made things 3-0 in favor of MC, while his second strike put the defending champions up 5-0 and broke the record. He then completed his hat trick to close the scoring for City at six. It was simply a memorable day all around, but he made things even sweeter by setting the new record.
With so much more football ahead of him, Aguero will look to get to 200 goals in league play. While it seems like an insane number, never count out the man with the golden right foot to get something done.
