Who won the internet this weekend: Thierry Henry's reaction or Aguero's five-up?

It was an action-packed weekend of action in the Premier League this weekend.

Goals, sackings, sending-offs, free-kicks and comebacks - it had it all, but what was the top moment?

Sergio Aguero

Much like JFK getting shot, everyone remembers where they were when United beat Ipswich 9-0 in 1995 and, just over 20 years later, Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero matched his effort in the blue half of Manchester, netting five goals in 20 minutes against hapless Newcastle. Take a look at his fine run of strikes below.

Thierry Henry

Just over 24 hours later, Liverpool had just drawn 1-1 with Everton at Goodison Park when news filtered through to the Sky studios that Brendan Rodgers had become the first manager to get the boot in the Premier League this season. Thierry Henry's delicate, tense, comforting reaction is, frankly, hilarious. Jamie Carragher just looks rather confused. Magnificent stuff.
