Raheem Sterling has hailed Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero as one of the best in the world after seeing him complete a century of Barclays Premier League goals.

The 27-year-old Argentina international reached three figures in Tuesday night's 1-1 draw at Newcastle, his 147th league appearance, a feat bettered only by Alan Shearer.

Sterling, who returned from a five-game injury lay-off as a second-half substitute at St James' Park, said: "He's a great player.

"A player who can always score goals is a massive asset to your team, and he's a player that can score at any any football match, so it's massive to have a player like that in your team.

"He's definitely up there with the world's best strikers because he is a player who scores goals in big games and who scores decisive goals. That's the sort of player he is."
