Rush: Man City striker Aguero a Premier League great

Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is among the greatest seen in the Premier League.

The Argentine's 20 goals this season have kept City neck-and-neck with Liverpool going into their game against Chelsea on Sunday, including last weekend's hat-trick against Arsenal.

"I'd put him right up there as one of the best ever strikers in our league," said Rush, who scored a record 346 goals for Liverpool.

"Every year people ask me who is going to be top scorer. I always say if he stays fit, Sergio Aguero. In many ways, he is like the old school strikers. He will get the tap-ins and good goals as well. He is something special.

"The thing that stands out is he's a natural finisher. He is a dying breed. Everyone now wants to play No 10 and score wonder goals.

"Aguero is similar to Michael Owen in his heyday. Because they are both small, they have a low centre of gravity."
