Nine years after his goal won Manchester City's first Premier League title, Sergio Agüero performed more final-day magic.

Agüero came off the bench to score twice on Sunday against Everton, setting the record for most Premier League goals scored by a player for a single club. City won 5-0.

In what is likely his final Premier League appearance for City, Agüero pushed his career total to 184 goals, surpassing former Manchester United star Wayne Rooney's 183 for the Red Devils. The record arrived in the 76th minute, when Agüero snapped a header into the net off a cross from Fernandinho:

Agüero had already danced through the Everton defense to bag his first a few minutes prior:

The 32-year-old announced in late March he was leaving City after this season, and is reportedly joining Barcelona to link up with international teammate Lionel Messi. He signed with City in July 2011 and scored 23 goals his first league campaign, none more memorable than the last, which completed a 3-2 City comeback on the final day of the season against Queens Park Rangers and clinched the club's first Premier League title in stoppage time.

This season, Agüero has been beset by injury and COVID absences. He finishes the season with four league goals, by far his lowest total in a City shirt, and manager Pep Guardiola crafted yet another league title principally around the lack of production from the striker position.

But that's merely a footnote on the career of Agüero, who might be the greatest Manchester City player of all time. With City facing Chelsea in next Saturday's Champions League final, Agüero may have one more moment of magic left before he leaves.
