Alan Shearer reacts to Sergio Aguero matching his Premier League hat-trick record vs Chelsea

There's no doubt that Sergio Aguero was the star of the show in Manchester City's 6-0 demolition of Chelsea. 

The Argentine forward netted a hat-trick on Sunday afternoon and in the process, reached three impressive goalscoring milestones.

Not bad at all for a day's work. 

His first finish of the day was the most special as he curled a stunning effort past Kepa Arrizabalaga from 25-yards. 

Aguero's second goal was far more simple. He latched onto a terrible back-header from Ross Barkley and turned in the ball from close range. 

Early in the second half, he completed his hat-trick by converting from the penalty spot. 


Thanks to his goals against Chelsea, Aguero has now become Man City's outright leading goalscorer. 

He has 160 Premier League goals, taking him above Eric Brook and Tommy Johnson's 158 top-flight goals.  


As well as that, the Argentine has now reached 200 goals and assists for one PL club - becoming only the sixth player to do so. 

And perhaps most impressively, Aguero's hat-trick saw him equal one more record. 

His treble against Chelsea was the 11th of his Premier League career and he's now level with Alan Shearer, who previously held the record.  


It's surely only a matter of time until City's number 10 overtakes Shearer now - and it wouldn't even be surprising to see him do it this season. 

A lot of attention post-game was on the fact that Aguero has now scored the joint-most hat-tricks in the modern era - and the news even reached Shearer himself. 


Unsurprisingly, the BBC Sport pundit was watching the game from home and witnessed Aguero matching his record first hand. 


Thankfully, his colleague Jermaine Jenas was there to record the reaction - and he then posted it on Twitter for all to see. 

To be fair, Shearer took the news pretty well, but he doesn't look best pleased.

And Jenas goading him by suggesting it's only a matter of time until Aguero breaks the record probably didn't help!
