"We started well, but then Aguero appears from nowhere and does something special." - Sunderland manager Gustavo Poyet on Sergio Aguero (above).

The plaudits are piling fast for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, who led the Citizens  to a precious  victory over Sunderland yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said the 26-year-old is one of the best five players in the world.

Sunderland manager Gustavo Poyet went one better, saying: “Sergio is unique and at this moment in time he is one of the top three on-form strikers.
