Sergio Aguero joined an elite club of players to score five goals in a Premier League game yesterday when he ran riot upon Newcastle United in Manchester City’s 6-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.
The Argentine, who had previously only managed one top-flight goal this season, struck five times in 20 minutes either side of the break to put his name alongside some greats of the Premier League.
Here is a reminder of the other quartet of top strikers to have achieved such a feat…
