Sergio Aguero has been plundering goals and making history since joining Manchester City in 2011.

The 32-year-old has one season left on his Manchester City contract and is likely to move on to another club when the deal ends – if he doesn’t leave earlier. Aguero has 10 match days left in the Premier League to add to his Premier League goals records.

Manchester City will return to Premier League play versus Arsenal and fans are anticipating the clubs’ big match. Bettors can visit lotteriespromocodes.com/ to get a bet bonus to wager on the team they predict will win the match.

Aguero has scored 254 career goals in his Manchester City career in all competitions and records have crumbled. Which records have the Argentine achieved in the Premier League since pulling on the Manchester City shirt nearly a decade ago?

Most consecutive 20-goal seasons

In spite of Aguero’s inability to stay fully fit through an entire Premier League season, he has put together five consecutive 20-goal seasons.

Currently, Aguero shares the 20-goals scored in five consecutive seasons with former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry. He is just four goals away from making the record his own by scoring four more goals in the current campaign.

Aguero will have the chance to add to his total on when Arsenal visit the Etihad Stadium on matchday 29. Supporters can visit Avantagebet to get a bet bonus before wagering on the team they believe will win the big showdown.

Most goals in a Premier League game

Consistency is Aguero’s middle name keeping up his goalscoring over long periods since arriving at Manchester City. The striker has also shown bursts of goalscoring in singular matches.

On October 3, 2015, Aguero showed his ruthless streak putting five goals past a hapless Newcastle United in the Premier League. All five goals came in a 20-minute time span. Unfortunately, Aguero could have had a double hat-trick but was subbed off just after the hour mark.

Most Premier League hat-tricks

A hat-trick is an incredibly difficult fit but Aguero has achieved it on 12 different occasions. He averages more than one hat-trick per season since joining the Cityzens. His most recent Premier League hat-trick came in January 2020 versus Aston Villa when he plundered a trio of goals. Aguero’s trio of goals versus Aston Villa gave him the most Premier Hat-tricks record all to himself. He previously shared the record with former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United player Alan Shearer.

Most Premier League goals for Manchester City player

Manchester City’s success in the Premier League – and football in general – has come since Sheikh Mansour bought the club in the late 2000s. Since arriving at the Etihad Stadium, Aguero has bagged an unbelievable 180 league goals.

That number is likely to increase if Aguero remains at the club through the remainder of his current contract. After manager Pep Guardiola’s arrival in 2016 at Manchester City, the narrative has always been that Aguero isn’t wanted.

Yet, his Premier League goals scored record shows that Guardiola may not dislike the striker as much as believed.
