Man City’s Aguero & Tottenham’s Eriksen set Premier League records

Man City & Sergio Aguero

It was a fabulous Saturday for Sergio Aguero and Man City.

Many tipped Liverpool to win at the Etihad Stadium following the Reds’ 4-0 win over Arsenal last time out.

But that’s not how the game panned out at all. An early goal from Sergio Aguero put Man City ahead, and the match turned when Sadio Mane was sent off.

After that the floodgates opened. Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane both scored braces as Liverpool lost 5-0.

Aguero is now six goals short of becoming Man City’s record goalscorer.

He’s now chalked up 124 Premier League goals for Man City, and that’s set a new Premier League record.

Aguero is now the top scoring non-European player in the league’s history, overtaking Man United and Aston Villa’s Dwight Yorke (123 goals).

More Man City stats

Sticking with the Man City stats, Gabriel Jesus continues to start his Man City career on fire.

The Brazilian centre-forward has now been directly involved in 13 goals in his first 12 Premier League games.

Jesus has scored nine EPL goals for City, and he’s assisted four times too.

And on the topic of Man City assists, since his Sky Blues debut in September 2015, no player has more Premier League assists that Kevin De Bruyne (29).

Tottenham & Christian Eriksen

It was also a brilliant weekend for Tottenham.

After a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea and Burnley’s late 1-1 draw last time out, Spurs faced a tough match at Everton.

But now that’s August is over, Harry Kane is back scoring. The England international bagged a brace in a 3-0 win at Everton.

The other goalscorer for Tottenham was Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen has now scored 32 Premier League goals, which makes him the joint-highest Danish scorer in Premier League history.

He shares that record with former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.
