On this day: Aguero smashes Premier League record

Games, moments - good and bad - on this day in our history...

12 January


City suffer defeat at Goodison Park, as a solitary Joleon Lescott goal hands Everton all three points.

The future City defender slides home Mikel Arteta's delivery just after the half-hour mark, after the visitors fail to clear.

The result sees the Toffees climb above Sven-Goran Eriksson's side into fifth place in the Premier League.



City record a sixth successive Premier League victory, defeating Newcastle United 2-0 to return to the top of the table.

An early goal from Edin Dzeko and second deep into injury time from Alvaro Negredo settle a feisty affair at St. James' Park.

Joe Hart and Aleks Kolarov in particular are excellent throughout as the away side extend our unbeaten run to 15 matches against a pumped up Magpies and record a first clean sheet in the league away from home since September.


Sergio Aguero scores a hat-trick, as ruthless City thrash Aston Villa 6-1 at Villa Park.

In the process, Kun becomes the greatest overseas goalscorer and sets a new benchmark for Premier League trebles.

Riyad Mahrez opens the scoring on 18 minutes with a fine individual goal before doubling the lead just six minutes later, finishing emphatically from close range.

The visitors make it three in 10 minutes when Aguero rifles a 20-yard shot into the top left-hand corner to virtually end the contest with less than half an hour played.

Gabriel Jesus adds a fourth on the brink of half-time before Aguero becomes the Premier League’s greatest overseas goalscorer with his second goal of the night on 57 minutes, wriggling past a couple of challenges and burying a low shot into the bottom corner from 15 yards.

Aguero completes his record haul of hat-tricks nine minutes from time to cap a memorable day for him and City.
