Aguero equals Alan Shearer's EPL goal record

Sergio Aguero equals Alan Shearer's Premier League hat trick record

February 10, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
One more, and the milestone will be totally his.

He is a small bundle of genius and that is enough for Sergio Aguero to reinforce why he is Manchester City's all-time top goalscorer. The encounter with Chelsea proved not to be as magnanimous as anticipated with City's efficiency spearheaded by the Argentine forward ruling the day.

The tale could have been different as Aguero started off the proceeding with an almost unpardonable open-goal miss after Raheem Sterling had put the Citizens a goal ahead inside the fourth-minute. But the memory faded swiftly with the forward making amends a few minutes later via a stunning belter.

A mistake in Chelsea's 18-yard-box gifted the ex-Atletico Madrid star a second goal for Illkay Gundogan ensured that the Etihad outfit had a four-goal advantage before the 25th-minute mark.

The half-time break brought good tidings with Pep Guardiola's side winning a penalty after Raheem Sterling was brought down in the box by Azpilicueta. Sergio Aguero subsequently stepped up to send Arrizabalaga the wrong way to grab his hat trick.

Stealing home the match ball, as a result, the Premier League's record book was also revised. The Argentine forward matched Alan Shearer's record of being the player with the most Premier League hat tricks in history. Both players are now tied at 11 apiece although the record is now Aguero's for the taking.

Overall, his poacher-esque attribute has seen him rack up 15 hat tricks across all competitions, with three of such coming this season.

Momentarily, the Argentine has scored 160 goals in the English Premier League for Manchester City.
