Sergio Aguero became the fifth Premier League player to score five goals in a game as he helped City come from behind to thrash Newcastle 6-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

All of the Argentinian's goals came in a 20-minute spell - making it the fastest five-goal haul in the league's history.

After Aleksandr Mitrovic put the visitors ahead, Aguero equalised with a header in the 42nd minute. He had already completed his hat-trick eight minutes later.

Only four other players to have managed the feat since the Premier League began in 1992 - Jermain Defoe for Tottenham, Alan Shearer for Newcastle and Andy Cole and Dimitar Berbatov for Manchester United.

Man City skipper misses Monchengladbach trip

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has been ruled out of Wednesday's Champions League Group D clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Man City quadrupled De Bruyne wages - Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg's director of sport Klaus Allofs has revealed that Kevin de Bruyne is now earning four times as much with Manchester City as he was getting at the Bundesliga club.

The Belgian moved to the Barclays Premier League outfit at the end of the summer transfer window, despite still having four years to run on his contract with the Wolves.

His sale - for a Bundesliga record fee of 75 million euros - was unavoidable, according to Allofs, with the money put on the table by City too much for the player to turn down.

"When a player comes to you with an offer from a club willing to pay him four times as much [as he is already earning], then you've got to consider what's going through his head," Allofs told Die Welt newspaper.

"We had looked for a solution which would have allowed us to keep hold of him for at least another year, but when that was not possible, it was clear that we would sell him."
