Sergio Agüero has dazzled Premier League fans around the globe with his clinical goal-scoring exploits for almost a decade.
From making his Independiente debut aged 15 years & 35 days to scoring 100 goals for Atlético Madrid by the time he was 23, it's been quite a journey for Man City's all-time record goal-scorer.
It's virtually impossible to condense a career of such consistent brilliance into four stats, but OPTA's best facts & figures do the job pretty well.
