Aguero joins Henry & Rooney in 150 club with landmark Man City goal

The Blues registered a 3-1 victory against local London rivals Crystal Palace on Sunday which took them to 2 place on the Premier League table and kept them in touching distance with leaders Manchester City two who are points ahead.

Welcome to the latest football transfer gossip column from The Sport Review, featuring all of the latest Premier League transfer news and rumours.

City's all-time leading scorer also became the third man to notch 150 times for a single Premier League club behind Thierry Henry for Arsenal (175) and Wayne Rooney for Manchester United (183).

Pep Guardiola's side were comfortable 6-1 home winners against Southampton, whilst Liverpool, who many are expecting to be City's main challengers this season, were held to a 1-1 draw away at Arsenal.

German midfielder Leroy Sane scored Manchester City's sixth goal one minute into the second-half stoppage time.

City doubled their advantage when Sterling carved his way into the area and squared for Aguero to fire home another landmark goal.

While speaking to reporters, the 29-year-old Spaniard explained that Chelsea can not afford to drop points if they want to go ahead of Manchester City, "It's in our hands".

"We are two points behind and it's up to us to keep the rhythm".

Palace started the game in brighter fashion.

That is thanks to their incredible defensive record, which has seen them concede just three goals in their first 10 matches to leave them on a par with the great Chelsea side of 2004-05.

Morata's omission could be deemed a surprise given he has recently found form, with six goals in seven appearances. "He's played three games in a row and sometimes it's better to actually rest than always play. Of course we are strikers and you want to score, but we need to win also".

While the lack of mention for Chelsea is baffling considering the impressive start made by Maurizio Sarri's side, it is seemingly a fair assessment from Carragher.
