Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has heaped praise on Sergio Aguero after the striker’s hat-trick helped Manchester City thrash Chelsea 6-0 on Sunday.


The Argentina international registered his second hat-trick in a week - after scoring a treble in City’s 3-1 win over Arsenal last weekend - to equal Alan Shearer's record of 11 hat-tricks in the Premier League, making Carragher suggest Aguero is the best goalscorer English football has ever seen.


"He's just clever. He's switched on, he's alive," the former Liverpool defender told Sky Sports.


"I've played against him and at times he can be quiet in a game, but before you know it something just happens. In terms of a goalscorer, he's the greatest we've seen in the Premier League.


"That's the difference between him and the other greats, he's a goalscorer rather than the greatest all-round player."


Aguero has now scored eight league goals for Man City in 2019 - double that of any other player in the competition.
