Watford had every reason to be wary of Sergio Aguero on Saturday but still they could still not stop the Manchester City striker hitting a hat-trick and edging himself closer to more Premier League records.

Aguero’s sixth Premier League hat-trick means that only Alan Shearer (11), Robbie Fowler (9), Michael Owen and Thierry Henry (both eight) have scored more in the Premier League.

Aguero's PL hat-tricks

Date Opponents Goals
10/09/11 Wigan (H) 3
18/10/14 Spurs (H) 4
10/05/15 QPR (H) 3
03/10/15 Newcastle (H) 5
16/04/16 Chelsea (A) 3
16/09/17 Watford (A) 3

It was Aguero’s 10th hat-trick in all competitions for City, with two of those coming against Watford.

It also extended Aguero’s away goal streak to eight consecutive Premier League starts.

Only Robin van Persie (nine) has embarked upon a longer run. Aguero’s only away match where he did not score was the 2-1 win at AFC Bournemouth, when he was a 66th-minute substitute.

If he doesn’t feature in the Carabao Cup trip to West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday, a similar performance against Crystal Palace on Saturday would also send Aguero past Erik Brook’s club-record 177 goals for City.

Aguero stands at 175 goal in all competitions for the club, 127 coming in the Premier League.
