Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero joined an exclusive goalscoring club on Saturday, as his goal against Norwich saw him become just the third man to score in each of the first five games of a Premier League season.
Aguero rose unchallenged to meet Bernardo Silva’s left-wing cross with a typical planted header into the bottom-right corner on the stroke of half-time to give Pep Guardiola’s side hope after they had trailed 2-0.
The feat had previously only been achieved by Wayne Rooney, for Manchester United in 2011-12, and the late Jose Antonio Reyes for Arsenal in 2004-05.
After netting the crucial equaliser at Brighton on the final day of last season, the goal against Norwich also saw Aguero score in his sixth consecutive Premier League appearance, the joint-best run of his Manchester City career.
And, as if to underline his efficiency, it was his seventh league goal of the season – from his seventh shot on target.
