‘It’s Getting Ridiculous’ ‘I Love This Man’ – Fans Running Out Of Superlatives After City Ace Bags Hat-trick

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero scored three goals as Pep Guardiola’s side came out 6-0 winners over Chelsea yesterday.

It was the Argentine’s eleventh hat-trick for City in the Premier League; equalling the record set by Alan Shearer.

After the game, Guardiola reserved special praise for Aguero’s consistency to score goals over a long period of time:

“I have said many times, Sergio scores every single season a lot of goals.”

“I admire these kind of players, the consistency. Young players come, but some stay for a long time, that is fantastic.”

Fans on Twitter lauded Aguero for his superb display against the Blues:

The hat-trick means the Argentinian striker is now level with Liverpool’s Mo Salah at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts with 17 goals.

Aguero is just four behind the 21 he scored in the whole of last season, and he is now on course to finish as the league’s top scorer for the first time since the 2014/15 campaign.

At 30 years of age, he’s got time on his side to break a few more records yet. He could surpass both Jermain Defoe and Robbie Fowler before the end of this season to become the sixth most prolific goalscorer in Premier League history.
