Sergio Aguero ended his debut season with Manchester City by scoring the iconic stoppage-time goal that secured the club's first Premier League title in 2011/12.

That was the first of five winners' medals for the striker during a prolific decade at the Etihad Stadium, in which Aguero broke numerous records and won countless accolades.

The Argentinian became the League's all-time leading foreign goalscorer during a 6-1 victory over Aston Villa in January 2020.

And, later in the same match, Aguero claimed the record for the most Premier League hat-tricks, netting his 12th to beat Alan Shearer's total of 11.

He is also one of only five players to score five times in a Premier League fixture, doing so against Newcastle United in 2015/16.

In typical Aguero fashion, he marked his farewell match for City with a brace against Everton, to overtake Wayne Rooney’s Premier League record for the most goals scored with one club.

Indeed, this made him the only player to ever net twice in his first and last match in the competition's history.

Most PL goals for one club
Player Club Goals
Aguero Man City 184
Kane Spurs 184
Rooney Man Utd 183
Henry Arsenal 175
Shearer Blackburn 148

Aguero’s tally of 184 goals in 275 appearances in the competition is bettered by only three players; Shearer (260), Rooney (206) and Andrew Cole (187).

As well as earning the 2014/15 Golden Boot, Aguero also claimed a Premier League record seven EA SPORTS Player of the Month awards.
