Premier League Player of the Week - Round 8

So, who else did you think it would be?

Sergio Aguero inspired Manchester City to a sensational 6-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday, as the Argentine forward scored five times in 20 minutes to put the Citizens top of the table.

[ PLAYBACK: Rodgers gone, but not forgotten ]

Aguero, 27, became only the fifth player in PL history to score five times in a single game as he joined Andy Cole, Dimitar Berbatov, Alan Shearer and Jermain Defoe in the record books.

Take a look at the video above to see City’s predatory forward in full flow, as Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva laid on the assists for Aguero to finish off.

The little fella makes it look easy, doesn’t he?
