Sergio Aguero overtakes Thierry Henry to become Premier League record overseas goalscorer

Pep Guardiola is preparing to take his Manchester City side to Villa Park as the Citizens look to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League.

With Orjan Nyland in goal, Villa were thrashed 6-1 by Manchester City on Sunday to slip into the Premier League relegation zone.

The Argentinian also set a new record for the number of Premier League hat-tricks, netting his 12th to overtake Alan Shearer.

The Argentina global beat Henry's tally on Sunday at Villa Park as he scored City's third and fifth goals in their 6-1 win.

Shearer's record of most Premier League goals (260) is still very much safe though, and Aguero has the likes of Wayne Rooney (208) and Andy Cole (187) ahead of him in the all-time goalscoring charts.

Gigi Hadid, Zayn Malik confirm their reunion
One year after they broke up for the second time, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid reunited on his 27th birthday on Saturday, Jan. 12. The couple confirmed their first break-up in March 2018, but they were back together again by the following month.

Meanwhile, Guardiola insists Sergio Aguero will "die scoring goals" after his record-breaking hat-trick demolished Villa.

Jesus' fellow Brazilian Ederson is back from suspension and illness as one of six changes from the City team that beat United 3-1 in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at Old Trafford in midweek, with Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling among those dropping to the bench.

"We've managed to secure a player in Pepe who has a wealth of Premier League experience", Smith told Villa's website.

'What else can you say?' said De Bruyne. Off the pitch too, the way he acts, is really good. "To come and do this on a consistent basis for nine or 10 years is unbelievable".

"He just plays football and for the rest he keeps himself to himself, so that's nice". For me, it is not always necessary to compare people.
