Alan Shearer claims Sergio Aguero better than Thierry Henry

Glenn Murray says Albion won't get carried away

Glenn Murray says Albion won't get carried away

And Shearer believes Aguero deserves the title of the top flight's most successful foreign recruit, ahead of star names like Henry, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Liverpool vice-captain converted from the spot on the stroke of half-time to give his team the lead at Selhurst Park and in doing so became the first player to score eight consecutive Premier League goals from penalties.

His three-goal haul means he now sits on 146 goals in 208 appearances, with the former Atletico Madrid man just three hat-tricks away from overtaking Shearer.

Neves has been nicknamed the "Portuguese Andrea Pirlo" by some because he plays very much in a similar way to the Italy legend, who was his hero when growing up.

But according to Shearer, whose outstanding record sees him having scored 52 goals more than any other player with his total of 260 across spells with Blackburn and Newcastle, Aguero is the best foreign import ever to grace the league.

Trump ex-lawyer Cohen pleads guilty - and implicates president
Trump was aware of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting before it took place, although he has shown no evidence to support this claim. Manafort, 69, has been in jail since June after his bail was revoked following new charges of witness tampering against him.

The 21-year-old, who has had a sensational 12 months at the Molineux Stadium, scored a goal and assisted another on his Premier League debut in Wolves' 2-2 draw with Everton in gameweek one.

In his Premier League Team of the Week column for the league's official website, Shearer hailed: "He was deadly again. A great centre-forward with no weaknesses".

He fired them to their first Premier League title in 2011-12 and has helped contribute to two more title successes, including last season, as well as three Carabao Cup wins.

'I thought to take Sergio off before the hat-trick but in the end it was ideal, he scored a goal and off to a standing ovation'.

A couple of weeks after scoring his 200th goal for City in the Community Shield against Chelsea, Aguero continues to look as sharp as ever and was unplayable on Sunday.
