Sergio Aguero has become only the sixth player in Premier League history to score or assist 200 goals for one club after bagging a hat-trick against Chelsea.

The Argentine scored three Premier league goals in a ruthless performance from Manchester City as they went into half-time with a four-goal lead.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring for the hosts after just four minutes with a powerful finish before Aguero doubled the lead with a ferocious long range effort that curled into the top corner.

He added another just a few minutes later, latching onto Ross Barkley’s terrible back header, while Ilkay Gundogan got in on the act with a neat finish from the edge of the box.

Aguero added his third from the penalty spot and his contribution means he is one of only six players to register 200 goal involvements for a single club in the Premier League, joining an illustrious list.

Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs for Manchester United, Thierry Henry for Arsenal, Frank Lampard for Chelsea and Steven Gerrard for Liverpool are the only other players to reach that milestone.

Aguero’s strikes also see him become Man City’s outright all-time top scorer in the league on 160, two more than Eric Brook and Tommy Johnson.

The hat-trick also sees Aguero move to 17 Premier League goals for the season, now level with previous leader Mohamed Salah, while the Argentine also has six assists.

The hat-trick also sees Aguero move to 11 Premier League hat-tricks, now level with all time hat-tricks scorer Alan Shearer.
