The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Ser­gio Aguero has made Premier League history af­ter scor­ing five goals in 20 min­utes dur­ing Manch­ester City's 6-1 win over New­cas­tle United on Satur­day. The Ar­gen­tine net­ted the English topflight's fastest-ever quin­tu­ple, best­ing Jermain De­foe - who net­ted five in Tot­ten­ham's 9-1 win over Wi­gan Ath­letic in 2009 - by 16 min­utes. Aguero's first goal lev­eled the score at 1-1 in the 42nd minute, with his fifth com­ing in the 62nd minute to round off the rout. The only other play­ers to hit five goals in a sin­gle match are Alan Shearer for New­cas­tle, and Andy Cole and Dimitar Ber­ba­tov for Manch­ester United, with the for­mer net­ting his tally in 54 min­utes, and the lat­ter pair both scor­ing their goals in 68 min­utes.
