Sergio Agüero's hat-trick against Aston Villa on Sunday took his tally of Premier League goals to 177, the highest number scored by a foreign player.
The cosmopolitan nature of the Premier League has made it one of the most popular domestic leagues on the planet, if not the most popular, as superstars from abroad continue to thrive in a league that has become a massive commercial juggernaut.

Worth their weight in gold
Of course, there have been other foreign names to have dazzled audiences in England that didn't quite reach a century of goals. Players like Gianfranco Zola, Dennis Bergkamp, Eric Cantona, David Ginola, Cristiano Ronaldo & Eden Hazard scored spectacular goals to get fans off their seats and take their collective breath away on a regular basis.
The English game has a core of local talents but its supporters should be eternally grateful for the influence and talent from around the globe that has enriched this sporting brand to such a great degree.
Thierry Henry, the man that Agüero eclipsed to take his place at the top of the charts, scored stunning goals at a furious rate for Arsenal during his glorious eight-year spell in London. Many pundits believe that Henry is the finest imported talent in Premier League history.
