A host of deadly strikers have come from overseas to play in the Premier League and with two records set this weekend, Sergio Aguero has shown that he is the most prolific of them all.
With his hat-trick at Aston Villa on Sunday, the Argentinian took his tally to 177 top-flight goals in England.
That has beaten the previous record of 175 goals, set by Arsenal's Thierry Henry to make Aguero the top-scoring foreign player in the competition's history.
Aguero has reached his mark in three fewer matches than Henry, having taken 255 Premier League fixtures to score his 177 goals, while Henry took 258.

Aguero is now joint fourth in the all-time Premier League scoring list, level with Frank Lampard, and is 10 goals behind the 187 scored by third-placed Andrew Cole.
"Aguero is a legend," said his manager Pep Guardiola. "I think he is one of the most incredible players I've seen in this league.
"He will be proud. We've congratulated him in the locker room because to score this many goals means you have done for many, many years a lot of good things."
And with his three goals at Villa Park, Aguero also holds the outright record for Premier League hat-tricks.
He had been level with Alan Shearer on 11 hat-trick since scoring three in the 6-0 victory over Chelsea in February 2019.
But now he leads the way on his own thanks to his 12th treble on Sunday.
