Came off the bench to net a late winner at Old Trafford with a superb solo effort.

Brought up his half-century in just his 74th appearance with the first of a double in a 4-1 win over City’s arch-rivals, hooking in a volley from six yards out.

Number 100

v Manchester United, Premier League – April 12, 2015

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.

Number 134

v Newcastle, Premier League – April 19, 2016

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-fastest player to reach that milestone behind Alan Shearer – Harry Kane has since split the duo.

Number 150

v Middlesbrough, Premier League – November 5, 2016

Sidefooted home an inviting cross from Kevin De Bruyne.

Number 178

v Napoli, Champions League – November 1, 2017

The goal that saw him become City’s record goalscorer, overtaking Eric Brook’s long-standing tally of 177. Aguero picked up an attack after Leroy Sane was dispossessed, driving forward and shooting home from the edge of the box. Helped City to a memorable victory at the San Paolo stadium.

Number 183

v Bournemouth, Premier League – December 23, 2017

Number 200

v Chelsea, Community Shield – August 5, 2018

Number 200!
