Former Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer has named Manchester City stiker Sergio Aguero as the only world class player in the Premier League.

While the supporters will appreciate the praise of their hero, they will also be confused by this statement. It is completely unfair to count out the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva of the “world class” label. They are arguably even more imperative to Man City’s current success than Sergio. Outside of the Sky Blues, big name footballers such as Alexis Sanchez, Eden Hazard, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have most definitely proven themselves as top players.

Agüero destroyed West Bromwich Albion on Saturday with two goals. He is now one goal away from his one hundred and fiftieth in a City shirt, however, this should not take credit away from the other fantastic players that football fans around the world have been treated to in the Premier League.
