Aguero hits hat-trick as Man City thrash Aston Villa

Agency, 13 January : Manchester City showed no mercy in thrashing a troubled Aston Villa 6-1 on Super Sunday as Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick made him the top non-English scorer in Premier League history.

Villa were as woeful as City were devastating in the first half as the champions went in 4-0 up; Riyad Mahrez struck low at the near post for the opener, and then pounced on debutant Danny Drinkwater’s mistake for the second .

Aguero struck finely into the top corner from the edge of the box, and it was four just before the break as Kevin De Bruyne’s world-class cross found Gabriel Jesus at the back post.

Just before the hour mark Aguero scored his record-breaking 176th Premier League goal with a slotted finish from 10 yards, and his 177th came from another lapse in the Villa defence (81). Villa scored a late consolation through Anwar El-Ghazi’s penalty.

The result means City have won nine of their last 10 in all competitions as they sit second, still 14 points behind Liverpool, who have a game in hand. Villa are now 18th and a point behind Watford after their 3-0 win at Bournemouth.
