Sergio Aguero is the new favourite to end the season as the Premier League’s top goalscorer after bagging his second hat-trick in a week in Manchester City’s 6-0 demolition of Chelsea.
The Argentine drew level with Alan Shearer’s record of 11 Premier League hat-tricks with his treble against Maurizio Sarri’s side, which followed on from him scoring all three of his side’s goals in the 3-1 win over Arsenal the previous Sunday.
His latest three-goal haul took his tally for the season to 17 goals, level with Mohamed Salah, who helped himself to Liverpool’s third goal in their 3-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who missed Arsenal’s trip to Huddersfield through illness, is now two goals back on 15 – while injured Spurs’ striker Harry Kane has 14.
Aguero has won the Golden Boot only once during his time in England, when he scored 26 goals in the 2014-15 season. He is a best price of 11/8* with BetVictor to win the award for a second time, while last season’s winner Salah is 6/4* at Bet365.
