Henry: There Is Only One World Class Striker In The EPL

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes there is only one striker he would deem as "world class" in the Premier League right now.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see who the Premier League's leading goalscorers this season are, according to Sky Sports.

The former France international feels that Manchester City and Argentina international Sergio Aguero is the only player who can be classified as one of the best in the world because of what he has achieved in the English top flight.

"The only one who is world class, or has been world class, is Aguero because of the longevity of what he has done in this league, year in and year out," the Frenchman told Sky Sports.

"He won the league here, and he has been doing it the longest. You have to give him a bit of credit. I think sometimes we bypass Aguero like he didn't happen."

The Belgium assistant coach did add, however, that Romelu Lukaku, Harry Kane and Alvaro Morata could eventually reach the Argentine's level.

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

"For Harry Kane, last season was short in the Champions League. It was short in the Europa League and the Euros.

"Morata was often off the bench at Madrid. He had a good year at Juve, but he was playing with (Fernando) Llorente or (Carlos) Tevez.

"They will get there, and we should be happy to have these players in our league."

Aguero is one goal away from becoming the Citizens' joint all-time leading goalscorer with Eric Brook, who netted 178 goals in 494 appearances, as per the Manchester club's official website.
