Alan Shearer has placed Sergio Aguero ahead of Thierry Henry in his list of the Premier League’s all-time great goalscorers, with both behind only the Newcastle icon himself.

Shearer debated the English top-flights best striker’s with Ian Wright and Gary Linekar.

Aguero is now coming up to his 32nd birthday and he’s still banging in the goals left, right and centre,” the Newcastle great argued.

“I know he’s playing in a magnificent team but 180-odd goals, 260 appearances and look what he’s won also. I love both of them, Thierry was different. The role now as a forward has slightly changed.

“There are not so many centre-forwards now, it’s a forward but the one constant is you have to score goals and both of them are not only great goalscorers but scorers of great goals.”
