Team-mates hail ‘goal machine’ Aguero



Sergio Aguero ’ s sixth Premier League hat -trick in the 6-0 demolition of Watford drew unstinting praise from his Manchester City team-mates on Sunday .

The 29 -year-old Argentinian — who needs just three goals to become Manchester City ’ s all-time leading scorer and replace Eric Brook who has held the record of 177 since 1939 — is a ‘ goal machine’ according to Ilkay Gundogan.

Now only Alan Shearer with 11 , Robbie Fowler with nine and Michael Owen and Thierry Henry with eight, have more Premier League hat -tricks .

“ He ’ s very special, just a goal machine, ” Gundogan told City’ s official website .

“ His last goal was incredible, it showed all his talent and how powerful he is.

“ We need him and hopefully he’ ll score a lot more goals. ”

Aguero could have had four goals but he stepped aside to allow Raheem Sterling to take a penalty against Watford — the England international converted it but was left purring about his team-mate’ s clinical finishing .
“ You can see every game that if you give Sergio a chance, nine times out of 10 it’ s a goal , ” said Sterling.

City ’ s thrashing of an in-form Watford side sent them top of the table and they have now scored 15 goals and conceded none in three matches in eight days.
