Sergio Aguero scores five goals in 20 minutes to devastate Newcastle
Sergio Aguero became only the fifth player to score five goals in a single Premier League match.
The Manchester City striker scored his five goals in a blistering 20 minute spell that saw the side fight back having gone a goal down to Newcastle.
Aguero, last season's top scorer, hadn't scored a Premier League goal since the win over Chelsea in mid-August before breaking out.
His first came just before half-time before he scored two in a minute, on 49 and 50 minutes, and two more on 60 and 62 minutes.
Kevin De Bruyne also scored for City as Newcastle fell apart early in the second half.
Aguero was withdrawn by Manuel Pellegrini after 66 minutes.
Alan Shearer, Andy Cole, Jermain Defoe and Dimitar Berbatov were the players to previously find the net five times in a single match.
