Sergio Aguero scored yet another hat-trick for Manchester City today, as the Argentine forward put in a man of the match display against Chelsea at the Etihad.
Aguero scored two goals in the first half as City ran riot against the Blues, with the former Atletico Madrid man then sealing his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the second half to hand City a 5-0 lead.
Aguero has now scored 11 Premier League hat-tricks in his career, meaning that he’s just one treble away from becoming the only player in league history to score 12, a feat that even the likes of Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry couldn’t achieve.
Man City’s forward talisman also become the first player since Didier Drogba back in 2010 to score consecutive Premier League hat-tricks at home, a feat made even more impressive when you realise these trebles have come against Arsenal and Chelsea, two of the best team in the division.

Aguero has now scored 160 career Premier League goals, meaning that he’s just one or two high scoring seasons from become the second highest all time goalscorer in the division.
One thing’s for certain, if Aguero carries on like this, it won’t be long before the Argentine is talked about as one of the very best players the Premier League has ever seen….
