Sergio Aguero has moved level with Eric Brook as Manchester City’s leading goalscorer after netting against Burnley from the penalty spot.

The Argentinian has now scored 177 goals for City, matching the feat of Brook – who played for the club between 1928 and 1939.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at some of the Argentinian’s memorable and milestone goals.

Notched another landmark goal in a clash with the neighbours by firing a close-range shot through the grasp of David de Gea for the second of another derby double – but it provided consolation only in a 4-2 loss.

Numbers 111-115 (v Newcastle, Premier League – October 3, 2015)

Delivered a masterclass in finishing to destroy Newcastle with five goals in the space of 20 minutes, equalling a competition record for the most goals scored by an individual in a match. Were it not for an injury-enforced substitution, he might have had the chance to net a record sixth.

The goal should have been disallowed for offside – but the headed opener in a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park was Aguero’s 100th in the Premier League. Coming in just his 147th Premier League appearance, he was the second-fasted player to reach that milestone behind Alan Shearer.

Number 150 (v Middlesbrough, Premier League – November 5, 2016)

Sidefooted home an inviting cross from Kevin De Bruyne.
