Guardiola hails ‘incredible’ Aguero as striker closes on Henry record

With a 3-2 win against QPR on the final day of the 2011/12 season, Aguero secured cult status with his injury victor in the city and secured the Premier League title of rival Manchester United in the final moments of the game.

Manchester City are prepared to allow club legend Sergio Aguero decide his own exit strategy.

His first of the match was number 175 of his Premier League career which made him joint top scorer with Theirry Henry as the league's all team top scorer from a non-English player.

After the Brighton game is potentially Villa's biggest in the Premier League as they host Watford in what could go some way in confirming who will be relegated at the end of the season.

Jesus, who also scored in the win at Villa Park, has some catching up to do if he is to get close to Aguero's current tally of 177 Premier League goals but he says he could not have a better player to learn from.

"Of course I think our football is different - he is more of a striker, more of a finisher".

"I think Reina would be thinking he can help, but it is very unfortunate for Nyland that on the day where Reina is watching, he concedes six, so chances are Reina will likely end up being in goal".

"When I scored the second, I thought one more and I break the hat-trick record".

The trio of goals in City'd 6-0 win put him tied for fourth place all time in the league, tying him with Frank Lampard.

However, out of respect to their all-time leading goalscorer, City chiefs are said to be reluctant to make concrete advances towards a potential move for a new centre-forward - instead reserving what is essentially special treatment for a player who is viewed as an institution among club's hierarchy. "He is the most humble person I have ever known".
