DREAM TEAM POINTS: Man City 5 Liverpool 0

Sergio Aguero is the top scoring non-European player in the Premier League after netting the first goal in Man City's 5-0 win against Liverpool

Gabriel Jesus might have been the star of the show as Man City beat Liverpool 5-0, but it was Sergio Aguero who took home a little bit of history.

The Argentinian is now the Premier League’s highest scoring non-European player after netting the first goal of the game.

It was the sixth time in a row that Aguero has scored when playing against Liverpool at home, and his 124th Premier League goal for City.

Can you name the previous holder of the record?

Of course you can. It was Dwight Yorke, who scored 123 goals for Aston Villa, Man United, Blackburn Rovers, Birmingham City and Sunderland.

But Yorke will now have to settle for second place, or dust down his boots and get back on the pitch again.

He still looks in decent nick

Jesus scored twice, as did substitute Leroy Sane, but the main talking point was a controversial red card for Sadio Mane.

Liverpool fell apart following the dismissal, which happened in the 37th minute.

It ended up being the joint-biggest margin of defeat for Jurgen Klopp and leaves him with a worse record than Brendan Rodgers at the same stage of his Liverpool career.
