The record-breaker Sergio Aguero scripts himself in the history books yet again. This time overtaking the legend, Thierry Henry. The Argentine became the highest-scoring foreign goalscorer in the Premier League in style; bagging himself a hat-trick.
In a 6-1 win over Aston Villa, Aguero took his goal-scoring tally to 177 goals in the domestic competition; 2 better than second placed Thierry Henry with 175 goals. The Arsenal forward would never have wondered his record to be broken, but Aguero it was to do some enigmatic stuff.
The top overseas goalscorer in #PL history…

The greatest Premier League overseas player of all time, Aguero had already surpassed Thierry Henry after scoring his second against Aston Villa. The third goal was just an icing on the cake.
And wait, that’s not the only record we should be dwelling upon. Aguero has now become the most hat-trick scorer of the Premier League with 12 trebles under his belt. He overtook the legendary Alan Sherer who had 11 hat-tricks in his career.
AND ANOTHER RECORD BROKEN!!!!!!!!
— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 12, 2020
Aguero, only 31, has at least, two years of football left in him and if he continues to play for Manchester City which I know he would, there would be no records untouched by him. Already a legend of English football, Aguero seems to be hungry for more.
The Argentine is in peach of a form and is the reason for Manchester City’s dominance. If he continues to play the way he has been doing since 2012 game against QPR, we can expect a trophy or even two to come to Etihad.
Until then, let’s enjoy the treat of a superstar who is taking down greats one by one, in the process of becoming one himself.
