The Argentina striker overtook Frenchman Thierry Henry as the Premier League’s leading overseas marksman after taking his tally to 177 goals in 255 matches during Manchester City’s 6-1 thrashing of Aston Villa.
Aguero also boasted the most hat-tricks in the competition’s 18-year history, with his 12th treble seeing him move past Alan Shearer.
The then 31-year-old, who joined City from Atletico Madrid in 2011, told Sky Sports after the match: “I’m so happy for the record.
“But I thank my team-mates because they helped me this year. I’m so happy.
“I want to keep scoring more goals, but it all depends on my team-mates.
“If they pass to me, then it’s fine.”
Aguero went on to score 184 Premier League goals for City, placing him fifth on the all-time list.
He held the record for the most Premier League goals scored for a single club until it was overtaken by Tottenham’s Harry Kane last year.
