Bacary Sagna hails Sergio Aguero.

Aguero has given the Blues a lift in the title race.

Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna is convinced Sergio Aguero is the best player in the Premier League. Aguero scored a brace on Saturday and also missed a late penalty, as Manuel Pellegrini's Citizens ran riot over Aston Villa - thrashing them 4-0 at the Etihad. However, Sagna hailed Aguero - who increased his goal tally to 21 in all competitions, saying the Argentina international is the best he has ever played with. "For me he is the best player in the league and probably one of the best players in the world," the 33-year-old told reporters. "For me he is the best I have played with. I have played with great players, but he is just class. "He is class because he trains and enjoys football on the pitch. You can tell he gives the maximum for the team and he is very good. "He never loses the ball - even when he seems to lose it, he gets it back, holds it and manages to create space to put himself in some situations. He lifts the team up.

"I wouldn't like to play against him. For me he can be the best striker in the team and the league." City are 10 points behind table-toppers Leicester City with just one game in hand, but Sagna is still convinced they can bounce back to win the league. The France international added: "The title race is not over. Mathematically it's not over. This team has done it in the past, so we can do it again."
