‘£35m man could be key to Arsenal’s title dream but Aguero has the edge’ – Expert Eye

first_img Sergio Aguero has been hailed as better than Alexis Sanchez 1 Sergio Aguero has been hailed as the best striker in the Premier League – and tipped to get the better of Alexis Sanchez in this weekend’s big South American shoot-out when Manchester City host Arsenal.The Argentine ace made his comeback from a month out against Everton last weekend, and manager Manuel Pellegrini will hope he is fit enough to go head-to-head with the Chilean star in a battle of the top-flight’s hotshots at the Etihad Stadium.And despite the startling impact made by Sanchez since his summer move from Barcelona to north London, Aguero gets the nod as the most dangerous striker.That’s the view of Jamie Redknapp and Martin Keown in their exclusive Daily Mail column.Former Liverpool star Redknapp said: “I like to show Sanchez to my kids and encourage them to play that way — the desire he shows is incredible. He always wants to make things happen and I love that. But, if you’re talking about both players at the height of their game, I think Aguero would just pip it for me. His finishing would give my team the edge — he is more decisive.”And ex-Arsenal defender Keown, who won three Premier League titles with Arsenal, shares that opinion.“I’d tend to agree [with Jamie],” he said. “Aguero is up there with the best strikers we have ever seen in the Premier League. Since arriving in this country three-and-a-half years ago, he has performed at a consistently high level, at least when he’s not had injury problems. Sanchez has made a sensational start but it’s still early days for him.“He could be key as Arsenal try to become title contenders. But, as it stands, Aguero’s longevity and scoring record gives him the edge.”Click here to read the full Redknapp/Keown verdict on Aguero and Sanchez on MailOnlinelast_img read more
