Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero this afternoon joined Arsenal legend Thierry Henry in the history books of the Premier League, after finding the net versus Burnley.

Pep Guardiola’s Citizens travelled to Turf Moor a short time ago, for an absolutely crucial outing in the Premier League title race.

Liverpool’s victory over Huddersfield on Friday night had seen the Reds climb back above City to the summit of the English top-flight table once more.

The Sky Blues, though, on the back of securing all 3 points from their game-in-hand in the Manchester derby during the week, headed into proceedings this afternoon aware that a win would see them take another massive step towards retaining their Premier League crown.

And, when all was said and done at Turf Moor, a nail-biting 90 minutes eventually saw Pep Guardiola’s men secure the result they needed, by means of a hard-fought 1-0 victory.

Sergio Aguero bagged the only goal of the clash just past the hour-mark, as the Argentine’s effort from 6 yards somehow managed to cross the line, despite the best efforts of Matt Lowton.

A tense final half-hour saw what looked certain to be a City 2nd courtesy of substitute Gabriel Jesus spectacularly-cleared off the line by Ben Mee, but the champions, in the end, clung to their 1-goal advantage to retake leadership of the Premier League table, with just 2 games remaining.

And a superb day for all associated with the Citizens also saw the club’s star man, Sergio Aguero, etch his name into the history books of the English top-flight.

As showcased below, the South American’s strike came as his 20th of the league campaign, making Aguero just the 2nd-player to notch 20+ goals in 5 straight Premier League seasons:
