Sergio Aguero becomes top non-European scorer in Premier League history after Liverpool goal

Sergio Agüero continued his Manchester City story by breaking another record during the 5-0 win over Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at lunchtime on Saturday, further establishing himself as one of the most lethal marksmen in Premier League history.

Kun opened the scoring against Liverpool, rounding Simon Mignolet after an exquisite pass by Kevin De Bruyne, and making no mistake with his finish.

In addition to making it six games in a row he’s scored against Liverpool, Agüero’s strike nudged him ahead of Dwight Yorke to become the top goal scorer from outside of Europe in Premier League history.

The most impressive thing about this stat is how few appearances he has done it in. While Didier Drogba makes many Premier League XIs, he needed 254 games to score his 104 goals, while Kun now has 124 goals in 185 appearances. The power of nostalgia…

Another reminder that Agüero has also never been named in the PFA Team of the Year, despite statistically having the best minutes-per-goal ratio in Premier League history for most of his stay in Manchester.
