Jermaine Jenas says Kane needs to do this to be world class

Jermaine Jenas says Kane needs to do this to be world class

Arsenal icon Thierry Henry claims that Sergio Aguero is the only "world class" striker playing in the Premier League. "I think sometimes we bypass Aguero like he didn't happen" Henry said, according to the Dailymail.

The Argentina striker has secured his place in the history books through one of the most memorable and historic title wins in the Premier League era, when his stoppage time goal against QPR to make it 3-2 in the dying minutes of the 2011-12 season's final game sealed the championship for Manchester City.

The Arsenal great believes only one striker in the Premier League is world class - Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

Alvaro Morata soared 22 places into the No 2 spot and nearly toppled Aguero atop the chart after hitting a hat-trick during Chelsea's 4-0 win at Stoke, breaking the deadlock within two minutes - set up by a long pass from Cesar Azpilicueta (No 5, up 13 places).

Aguero, 29, will join Eric Brook as City's all-time top scorer with 177 goals should he net against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League tonight.

He is also the holder of two successive Premier League golden boot awards, and has continued his impressive form with six goals in seven appearances in all competitions this season.

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku (No 6, down three places) poached his sixth goal of the season with a 20th-minute match-winner at Southampton.

His total goal tally in Europe stands at 14 strikes in 35 outings in both the Champions League and Europa League.

'Morata was often off the bench at Madrid.

The Frenchman however rated the Argentine superstar ahead of Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata, Manchester United man Romelu Lukaku and Spurs' Harry Kane.

"In the Premier League, internationally, in the Champions League, how many times, how many years?"

Do you agree with Henry's views?
