Sergio Agüero Has Scored The Same Number Of Goals For City As Henry Did For Arsenal
Sergio Agüero has reached an impressive personal record after scoring for Manchester City as many times as Thierry Henry did for Arsenal.
There's a slight catch, however, as the 30-year-old Argentine striker has done it in 48 fewer matches than the Gunners legend.
Manchester City's all-time record scorer has played 328 matches and scored 228 times, which he reached after finding the back of the net in his side's 2-0 victory against Fulham on Saturday.

The Argentina international has been in superb form this season and is leading the charge for the Premier League Golden Boot, with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also vying for the award.
Phil Neville has already offered his two cents on the race for the Golden Boot and has backed Agüero to take home the award.
"He's got so much quality around him in terms of crosses from the right and left," he told the Premier League.
"Leroy Sané, Raheem Sterling Bernardo Silva, Kevin de Bruyne when he comes back fit, İlkay Gündoğan. He's got so much service and quality around him.
"He's always going to get chances. He's world, world-class.
"His record at Man City makes him one of the greatest foreign imports in terms of goalscoring that we've ever had."
Pep Guardiola's men are top of the Premier League and are one point ahead of Liverpool, though the Reds can move ahead of City with a win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Will Agüero win the Golden Boot this season?
