Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini rates Sergio Aguero ahead of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Aguero, 25, has bagged 11 goals in 13 Premier League games for City this season – while ­Uruguayan Suarez tops the charts with 13, having returned from suspension in September.

“I have said before that he is the best player in the Premier League and, of course, I still think that,” he said.

“There may be better strikers – but not better players. Yes, he is the most complete player and he is improving.

“He and Suarez are different players. Suarez is a very ­important striker – but I think Sergio has more parts to his game.

“He is getting better as he gets older. For me a player performs at his best between 24 and 30 years old.

“He started very young and ­every year he is improving.

“This year, the best thing he has been doing is scoring goals – but he’s added the work without the ball.”
