"Sergio Aguero is now on nine Premier League hat-tricks and only two behind me," said Shearer.

"The best foreign player to have ever played in the Premier League. A great centre-forward with no weakness," he said.

Aguero has now managed to haul in an incredible 146 goals, overtaking former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie, as the second highest non-British goal scorer in the league.

Ex-Arsenal and France 1998 World Cup winner Thiery Henry's 175 goals place him at the top of the list.

Some Arsenal fans may take offence and still consider Henry the best foreign player to have played on English soil and the league overall.
