#Aston-Villa 1-6 #Man-City: #Aguero breaks tons of records as City climb up to 2nd
Sergio Aguero made Premier League history as Manchester City hammered Aston Villa on a nightmare debut for Danny Drinkwater.
Full Match Report
Manchester City thrashed Aston Villa 6-1 as Sergio Aguero netted a hat-trick to break two records, Riyad Mahrez scored twice and former Leicester City team-mate Danny Drinkwater endured a debut to forget.
The contest was settled in a 10-minute spell at Villa Park in which Mahrez grabbed a double and Aguero equalled Thierry Henry as the Premier League’s top-scoring non-Englishman, later surpassing him and grabbing a record 12th hat-trick in the process.
It was a particularly harsh introduction to life at his new club for Chelsea loanee Drinkwater, who might have prevented the opener and effectively supplied the second.
GOAL! Aston Villa 0-1 Man City (Mahrez)
MAHREZ SCORES! Mahrez drifts past Drinkwater on the edge of the box before hitting his shot low towards the goal. It sneaks past Nyland and in at the near post. 1-0 City!
GOAL! Aston Villa 0-2 Man City (Mahrez)
MAHREZ HAS A SECOND! It’s sloppy play by Villa in their own box and the ball shouldn’t even make it to Mahrez, but it does. He’s not being picked up when Jesus squares it to him and he fires his shot into the back of the net. 2-0 City!
GOAL! Aston Villa 0-3 Man City (Aguero)
AGUERO ADDS A THIRD! He gets ahead of Luiz to get on the ball and decides to go for goal when Mings steps back to give him some space. He curls his effort around the keeper and into the top left corner. 3-0 City!
GOAL! Aston Villa 0-4 Man City (Jesus)
JESUS SCORES! The Brazilian gets in between Mings and Konsa as he makes his run through the middle to get on the end of De Bruyne’s cross. It’s a tap-in for him and it’s 4-0 to City!
GOAL! Aston Villa 0-5 Man City (Aguero)
AGUERO HAS HIS SECOND! Silva controls the ball under pressure from El Mohamady and cuts inside to make more space. He gets past Mings before firing his shot past Nyland and into the bottom right corner. 5-0 City!
