Sergio Aguero: Celebrates his first of five goals against Newcastle

Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero became the fifth player to score five goals in a single Premier League game – to join an elite set of names.

Here TEAMtalk looks at the other four players to achieve the record.

ANDY COLE

Cole became the first player to score five goals in the Premier League in the 9-0 humiliation of Ipswich at Old Trafford in March 1995.

ALAN SHEARER

Shearer netted a hat-trick in 12 first-half minutes and went on to grab two more as Newcastle hammered rock bottom Sheffield Wednesday at St James’ Park in September 1999, their first league win of the season.

DIMITAR BERBATOV

Another individual five-goal feast for the Old Trafford fans as the Bulgarian bagged five in United’s 7-1 thrashing of Blackburn in November 2010.

JERMAIN DEFOE

Defoe stands alone in being the only player to score five goals in one half – scoring all five in the second 45 minutes of the 9-1 win over Wigan in 2009.
