'There's only one world-class player in the Premier League'

Alan Shearer has insisted Manchester City are the only team in the Premier League who can boast a world-class player in their ranks after their dominant 4-0 away win at West Brom

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has risked the wrath of Premier League fans up and down the country by insisting Sergio Aguero is the only genuine world class player in England.

'Arsenal would win title with Aguero'

Despite the vast amounts of money splurged by Premier League clubs in the summer, the former England international has insisted the Argentinian striker is the only player who can give himself the lofty title.

Aguero scored twice as Manchester City cruised to a 4-0 victory over West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday, which left the pundit full of praise.

Speaking on Match of the Day, Shearer said: "He's the one genuine, world-class player I think we have in our Premier League and he's the best centre-forward."

When questioned by host Gary Lineker, Shearer backed up his claim by saying: "When you look at his record and you look at some the goals he can score, the goals that he has scored. 

"He's world-class."
