Pellegrini: I am sure Aguero is the best striker

Striker has 21 league goals this term

Manuel Pellegrini believes Sergio Aguero is the best striker in the Premier League and he has questioned why the Argentine has not been shortlisted for the PFA Player of the Year.

Aguero netted a hat-trick against Chelsea on Saturday to move 21 league goals for the season, just one behind Harry Kane.

The 27-year-old has scored 20+ goals in his five seasons with City and Pellegrini says the striker should be part of the PFA nominations.

"Sergio makes the difference when he's playing every game, every week. I am sure he is the best striker in this league," said Pellegrini.

"It is very strange that Sergio has played so many years here and has never been the best player in the Premier League," he continued.
