Sergio Aguero is now just two hat-tricks shy of equalling Alan Shearer’s record of 11 Premier League hat-tricks
The Manchester City striker scored three times to help the club eased past Huddersfield 6-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Now the Daily Mail reports that the 30-year-old is just two hat-tricks shy of equaling Shearer at the top of the all-time Premier League hat-tricks list at 11.
Shearer managed his hat-tricks in six years through spells at Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United between 1993-1999.
Although it has taken Aguero a year longer to reach nine hat-tricks, having managed three this year alone.
Joining the duo in the all-time Premier League hat-trick list are former Liverpool strikers Robbie Fowler (9) and Michael Owen (8).
Meanwhile, Arsenal great Thierry Henry and Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane are tied with Owen on eight hat-tricks.
