WATCH and VOTE: Premier League goals of the week

Sealed with a kiss. Pep Guardiola and City's all-time top scorer Sergio Aguero

Sealed with a kiss. Pep Guardiola and City's all-time top scorer Sergio Aguero

Despite struggling for fitness since Pep Guardiola took charge, making just 28 Premier League appearances during the last two seasons, the Spanish coach has announced his delight at being able to work with the 32-year-old.

Only one foreign player has a better scoring record in the 26-history of the league, with Arsenal legend Henry fifth on 175 goals having been a pivotal part of a Gunners side that went an entire campaign without defeat on their way to the title.

'The best foreign player to ever play in the Premier League.

Given his exceptional performance level since joining from Atletico Madrid for a bargain price of £38 million in 2011, Aguero is firmly in the conversation.

His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. Barlog said that the team's vision for a new God of War was in its infancy at the time God of War Ascension was released.

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.

After netting a brace in the Community Shield win over Chelsea earlier this month, Augero struck a hat-trick in Sunday's 6-1 demolition of Huddersfield at the Etihad Stadium.

"He was deadly again", the former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers said in selecting his team of the weekend for the Premier League's official website. Now on nine Premier League hat-tricks and only two behind me. "A great centre-forward with no weakness", he said. "Probably my first year at City and this last year now have been the best in my career so you want to make it last as long as you can, for sure".

City have won both of their opening games of the new Premier League season, and next play newly-promoted Wolves on August 25.
