Thierry Henry says that Manchester City star Sergio Aguero is the only striker in the Premier League that is "world class".

Aguero, who has scored six goals in as many games in the Premier League this season, is one goal shy of becoming City's all-time leading goalscorer.

Sergio Aguero, Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata, Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Gabriel Jesus have made exceptional starts, but what is it that sets them apart?

According to Thierry Henry, however, only one of those men can be deemed world class.

The England worldwide scored twice in Tottenham's 3-2 win against derby rivals West Ham United in the Premier League in Saturday's early kick-off at the London Stadium. You have to give him a bit of credit.

"I think we sometimes bypass Aguero like he didn't happen but we all agree that stats show he's the best".

Despite starring for Conte last season in the Premier League , Conte binned the striker after outlining his plans over the summer. Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis has said he is "proud of this club" for bringing striker Diego Costa back from Chelsea .

Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates scoring his side's first goal during the Premier League match against West Ham United. All three players have netted six goals in the league thus far.

The Spanish global has already equaled the total number of league goals scored by Torres in his first full season with Chelsea.

Having registered well over 100 goals for the Sky Blues while claiming two Premier League crowns and two League Cups, Henry believes that this consistency puts the 29-year-old in an attacking class of his own. That is what we are talking about. Lukaku has only just arrived at Manchester United and he's not played in the Champions League.

In short, he is becoming the complete striker that his manager Pep Guardiola exhorted him to be previous year. "The Euros were short also for him", said Henry. He had a good year at Juve but he was playing with Llorente or Tevez.

"We should be happy to have these guys in the Premier League".
