Thierry Henry explains why Sergio Aguero is the only world-class striker in the Premier League

Thierry Henry believes Sergio Aguero is the only world-class striker in the Premier League.

The Manchester City striker has been in devastating form so far this term, scoring six times in as many games for the leaders.

Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata aren't too far behind with five apiece while Harry Kane, who has won the golden boot in each of the last two seasons, is on four.

But for Arsenal legend Henry , Aguero is the only member of the quartet who can rival the elite players across the continent.

"The only one who is world class, or has been world class, is Aguero because of the longevity of what he has done in this league, year in and year out," he said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.

in the Champions League, how many times, how many years - that is what we are talking about," he added.

"They will get there, but they are not there yet.

"Lukaku has just arrived at Manchester United, he hasn't played long in the Champions League.

"For Harry Kane, last season was short in the Champions League. It was short in the Europa League and the Euros.

"Morata was often off the bench at Madrid. He had a good year at Juve but he was playing with Llorente or Tevez.

"They will get there and we should be happy to have these players in our league."
