Sergio Aguero’s three goals against Chelsea mean he is now Manchester City’s top league goalscorer of all time.

The Argentine has 160, putting him above previous record holders Tommy Johnson and Eric Brook who each scored 158.

Aguero, who is the club’s all-time leading goalscorer with 222, has also equalled Alan Shearer’s record of 11 Premier League hat-tricks.

Sergio Aguero scored another hat-trick as Manchester City emphatically defeated Chelsea 6-0 at Etihad Stadium to return to the top of the Premier League table.

Raheem Sterling fired into the roof of the net after only four minutes before Aguero hit a quickfire double, curling a superb shot into the top corner after 13 minutes before poaching his second and City’s third six minutes later.

Ilkay Gundogan made the score 4-0 after 25 minutes while Aguero’s penalty 11 minutes after half-time put him level with Alan Shearer’s PL record of 11 hat-tricks.

Sterling added a sixth 10 minutes from time after a neat move down the left.

City are top on goal difference, level with Liverpool on 60 points having played a match more. Chelsea drop to sixth on 50 points, behind Arsenal on goal difference.
