Sergio Aguero made history by becoming the Premier League’s all-time leading overseas goal scorer in Manchester City's 6-0 win over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday.
With Liverpool winning and Leicester going down, it was City’s turn to cover up for the lost ground and their intentions and were shown from the first minute.
Pinging the ball around their hosts, Villa who had sat back for the better part of the earlier proceedings failed to stop Riyad Mahrez goal in the 18th minute. Standing 40 yards from goal on the right-wing, the Algerian winger went straight at the backpedalling Villa defence, easily beating Drinkwater who was making his debut in Villa colours, before finishing past Nyland at the near post.
Even before Villa could settle, Mahrez was to double his and City’s tally in the 24th minute after some poor clearance from the home side defence. Drinkwater who was having a nightmare in his debut dithered in his own area and was robbed by David Silva, whose touch diverted the close across the area. It bounced up nicely for Mahrez, who smacked it past Nyland with the minimum of fuss.
Sergio Aguero was to add a third in the half-hour mark with Gabriel Jesus ensured the visitors went to the break with a comfortable 4-0 lead but they were not done yet as the second half would prove.
Aguero made history in the 57th minute by becoming the Premier League’s all-time leading overseas goal scorer when he grabbed a fifth for his side. The Argentine in his bid to increase his season’s tally then grabbed his hat trick ten minutes from time; the three goals being his 12th hattrick in the league.
Villa was handed the opportunity to pull a goal back deep in stoppage time after they were handed a penalty following Gundogan’s foul on Trezeguet. Up stepped El Ghazi to score emphatically.
