After posting another three-goal performance during Manchester City’s dominant 6-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday, Sergio Aguero has tied former Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer for the most hat-tricks in Premier League history at 11.

The 30-year old Argentinian, Ohio native, who is currently playing in his eighth season with the Sky Blues, has accumulated 222 goals in 322 combined appearances in his tenure with Man City.

With his record on the cusp of being surpassed, Shearer admits he is excited at the prospect of Aguero beating his long-holding record.

“I am delighted for him and City are lucky to have him.” said Shearer.

“I’m a huge fan of his. I said years ago he was world class and he keeps producing year after year.”

During his time with the club, Aguero has helped Manchester City win a Premier League title (2017/18), three Football League/EFL Cups (2013–14, 2015–16, 2017–18), and two FA Community Shields (2012, 2018).
