Sergio Aguero's second three-goal showing in as many matches has drawn the Manchester City striker level with Alan Shearer for most Premier League hat-tricks.

The Argentine star now has 11 league hat-tricks in eight seasons in England's top flight, registering as many as Shearer did in 14 Premier League campaigns with Blackburn and Newcastle.

T1 Alan Shearer 11
T1 Sergio Aguero 11
3 Robbie Fowler 9
T4 Thierry Henry 8
T4 Harry Kane 8
T4 Michael Owen 8
7 Wayne Rooney 7
8 Luis Suarez 6

A week after Aguero opened the scoring against Arsenal inside of a minute on his way to a 10th league trio, the former Atletico Madrid forward was again in the mood for a swift start, doubling City's advantage with a 13th-minute tally on Sunday at the Etihad.

Aguero made it 3-0 for the hosts six minutes later when got in behind the Chelsea defense to deftly place the ball beyond a helpless Kepa Arrizabalaga. The 30-year-old notched his treble shortly after the interval from the penalty spot before coming off for Gabriel Jesus.
