Sergio Aguero scored four goals against Leicester City to make history in the Premier League and confirm his status as one of the best ever strikers to play in England.

Manchester City’s record goalscorer added his fourth goal in the 90th minute with a superb strike from distance after hitting the Foxes for three in a 5-1 victory.

Aguero was rightly handed the match ball, but De Bruyne was quick to have some fun with his City team-mate.

The Belgian provided a hat-trick of assists for City and De Bruyne is now the best creator in Europe.

De Bruyne has provided 77 assists since August 2012, which is the best total of any player across any of the top five leagues in Europe.

Perhaps the playmaker thought his trio of assists cancelled out Aguero’s four-goal haul, as he robbed his team-mate of the ball at the end of the game.

As De Bruyne tries to sneak off with the ball, he is caught in the act by defenders Danilo and John Stones before Aguero catches up with him and reclaims his prize.

Aguero laughed off the incident in the post-match interview and fans across social media were amused by the funny antics.

The striker became just the fourth player to score 20 plus goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns with his performance against the Foxes.

Only Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Harry Kane have managed to do the same and it proves Aguero will be remembered as one of the greatest ever goalscorers in the Premier League.

Leicester will be bitterly disappointed to be thumped 5-1 by City after starting the second half on level terms.

But, the champions-elect were too good in the second period and extended their lead at the top of the table to 16 points.
