Sergio Aguero netted yet another hat trick in England last night.
This has made him the highest scorer of hat tricks in the Premier League surpassing Newcastle and English legend Alan Shearer. He is now closing in on Shearer’s goal record in England as well and is already the highest non-English scorer in the Premier League.
“I will try [to catch Shearer],” Aguero told Sky Sports. “He has too many goals so I don’t know. I will try.”
City boss Pep Guardiola was also delighted with Aguero and City in general.
“It was a good performance. We had control, the transitions and passes were good. It was a great result,” the Catalan told Sky Sports.
“Against Manchester United [in the Carabao Cup semi-final] they came back into the game in the second half but today we played a complete 90 minutes.”
He’s a legend and legends rise tonight,” he added. “Thierry Henry is one most incredible players to play in this league and he will be proud that Sergio is the guy who breaks his record. He was a legend and Sergio is the same. To score this amount of goals means you have done for many years a lot of good things. He’s been consistent for many years and so we are proud of him.
“He is the most incredible person. You cannot achieve this without being a guy who loves to play football.”
