The 31-year-old scored six goals from just three Premier League matches in January that included a hat-trick against Aston Villa which made him the highest foreign scorer in the competition’s history.

Aguero has been in outstanding form for Manchester City this season so far, netting 16 Premier League goals in 19 matches. Right now, only Jamie Vardy has a higher tally than him.

Aguero will be hoping to maintain his consistency as it will be needed if City are to have a chance of winning the Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s side play their next match against West Ham on Sunday.
