Without showing disrespect to the many English legends that played before the sport began in 1992 (we’re being knowing in case you missed it), the Premier League’s best ever striker tag still probably belongs to the likes of Alan Shearer, perhaps even Thierry Henry.
Let there be no doubt, however, Man City striker Sergio Aguero deserves to be mentioned among those illustrious names.
Despite being just 28 years of age, not to mention a 23 goal haul across all competitions, the Argentine’s time with Pep’s side seems to be considered by many as approaching its final chapter, especially with the emergence of Brazilian gem Jesus.
Indeed the 19-year-old was being preferred to Aguero for much of the January, that is until the young striker picked up a season ending injury, leading to City needing to rely on their gifted talisman yet again.
