Sergio Aguero was on top form on Saturday, grabbing a hat-trick as Man City smashed Watford 6-0 away from home.

That was his sixth Premier League hat-trick and takes him level with the likes Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez and Harry Kane.

However, still way out at the top is the Premier League’s greatest ever striker, Alan Shearer’s.

The Newcastle (and Blackburn & England) legend has an amazing 11 Premier League hat-tricks to his name, with nine when he was at Blackburn and surprisingly, considering the sheer number of goals he scored on Tyneside, only two for Newcastle.

They came in the 4-3 win over Leicester in 1996/97 and then five goals in the 8-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday on Sir Bobby’s home debut as manager.

Only three other players stand between Aguero (one of his was the five goals in the 6-1 win over Newcastle which proved to be Tim Krul’s final game for NUFC), Kane & Rooney and Alan Shearer, but they are all no retired – Robbie Fowler scored nine, Michael Owen and Thierry Henry eight each.

Owen scored one treble for Newcastle in a 4-2 win at West Ham in December 2005, whilst Andy Cole managed five PL career hat-tricks in total, including two for Newcastle, beating Liverpool 3-0 and Coventry 4-0 in the 1993/94 season.

    So what?

    More irrelevant space-filling shyte – who cares?

  • Paul Patterson

    Alan Shearer played in a good side at Blackburn for three seasons (93-96) and a good Newcastle side for four seasons (96/97) and (2001-04).
    He also missed half a season in 92, most of 1997/98 and half of 2000/01.
    Aguero has played in a title challenging Man City side since 2011-17. A great player, but Shearer was hampered somewhat.

    • Rich Lawson

      If Shearer had not been loyal to his roots and signed for Man’ Utd he would be out of sight of all of them.

      • Oooh bobbi fleckman

        Ltd regurgitate the myth that Shearer came out of loyalty. He came because he thought we were a better bet.
