Aguero bags fastest five-goal haul in Premier League history

Sergio Aguero has made Premier League history after scoring five goals in 20 minutes during Manchester City’s 6-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.

The Argentine netted the English top-flight’s fastest-ever quintuple, besting Jermain Defoe – who netted five in Tottenham’s 9-1 win over Wigan Athletic in 2009 – by 16 minutes.

Aguero’s first goal levelled the score at 1-1 in the 42nd minute, with his fifth coming in the 62nd minute to round off the rout.

The only other players to hit five goals in a single match are Alan Shearer for Newcastle, and Andy Cole and Dimitar Berbatov for Manchester United, with the former netting his tally in 54 minutes, and the latter pair both scoring their goals in 68 minutes.
