Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero recently broke the record for the most Premier League Player of the Month awards after picking up his last prize for January.
Harry Kane and Steven Gerrard have six each to their name. Aguero has now surpassed both players by winning the award on seven occasions. His first prize was in October 2013, with his last win just under a year ago in February 2019.
Aguero claimed the award on this occasion after a month in which he broke two more Premier League records.
The former Atletico Madrid forward became the top scoring overseas player in the competition’s history, surpassing Thierry Henry, with his second goal against Aston Villa on January 12.
He also became the player with the most trebles in Premier League history by 1 more than Alan Shearer after he completed his hat-trick at Villa Park.
In just three (3) league appearances for Manchester City, he scored two goals in their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace and went on to score the winning goal in a 1-0. In total Aguero has scored six goals success over Sheffield United. He now sits fourth on the all-time Premier League goalscoring chart having scored 180 goals in 258 appearances with Shearer, Wayne Rooney and Andy Cole ahead of him.
If Aguero can maintain his current form and even win a second Premier League Golden Boot then, Andy Cole’s tally of 187 goals could be easily overtaken by the end of the season.
