With a goal against Burnley, striker Sergio Aguero not only helped Man City approach the Premier League king, but also helped him establish an excellent record.
Specifically, with one goal at Turf Moor, Aguero now owns 20 goals in the Premier League this season, thereby becoming the second player after Thierry Henry scored at least 20 goals in five consecutive seasons.
Only Alan Shearer was the dominant player when former Newcastle striker pocketed more than 20 goals in 7 seasons at the highest ground in the fog (3 times in Blackburn and 4 times in Newcastle). Excluding consecutive seasons, Aguero has 6 seasons recorded at least 20 goals including 2011/12, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19.
And yet, Aguero currently owns 229 goals for City and is the best striker in the history of the team. In addition, El Kun is in front of another milestone. That is, if you make a hat-trick in one of the last two games in the Premier League this season, the Argentine striker will have a total of 12 hat-tricks since joining the Green Man since 2011, thereby surpassing Shearer – Who owns 11 hat-tricks.
