Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has explained that Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is the only world class forward now playing in the Premier League.

"I don't think Lukaku has the all-round game".

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero, Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku, Tottenham's Harry Kane and Chelsea's Alvaro Morata have all started strongly this season, with three of them already helping themselves to six goals and Kane notching four.

The top flight has its fair share of in-form strikers at the moment but the Arsenal legend believes only Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero warrants the tag.

The Premier League now has a group of prolific strikers like rarely seen before in its history, with the likes of Harry Kane, Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku in fine form.

The Argentine's last-minute goal against QPR in 2012 won his club their first ever Premier League, and he has gone on to contribute to one more league title and two league cups.

Thierry Henry believes that there is only one world class striker in the Premier League now and it is not the man who has won the golden boot for the past two seasons.

Hurricane Maria could threaten North Carolina later this week
The hurricane center said it is "likely that some direct impacts will occur along portions of the coast by midweek". Hurricane Maria is expected to continue weakening as it edges closer to eastern North Carolina on Tuesday .

Tottenham's Harry Kane (No 3, up 11 places) secured a 3-2 win at West Ham in the early Saturday kick-off, scoring a quick-fire double before half-time.

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

His total goal tally in Europe stands at 14 strikes in 35 outings in both the Champions League and Europa League. In the Premier League, with national team, in the Champions League, how many times, how many years - that is what we are talking about.

"Morata was often off the bench at Madrid".

Aguero, 29, will join Eric Brook as City's all-time top scorer with 177 goals should he net against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League tonight. He had a good year at Juve, but he was playing with (Fernando) Llorente or (Carlos) Tevez.

Do you agree with Henry's views?
