Thanks to a superb hatrick by Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal are now second on the Premier League log.
The former England striker stands by his insistence that Sergio Aguero is the only truly elite player in the top flight despite the Arsenal star’s magical display against West Ham
Sanchez bagged a hatrick within 14mins and Shearer admitted that Sanchez was unplayable but not world class.
“What I would say is, Arsenal are a much better team this year because of him,” the former England striker said on the BBC‘s ‘Match of the Day’.
“And I would also ask Arsene Wenger, if he is world class, why has he taken two years to play him centre forward?”
Shearer has previously said that Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero is “the one genuine world-class player we have in our Premier League” but did concede that, if he helps Arsenal to win the title this season, Sanchez would be up there with him.
Anyway, i don’t think Shearer should be taken seriously.
