Viral video showing why 'no one should compare Sergio Aguero to Thierry Henry'

Thierry Henry - the greatest striker in Premier League history

Sergio Aguero made a lot of history during Manchester City's 6-1 win away at Aston Villa yesterday afternoon.

The Argentine scored yet another hat-trick, his 11th in the Premier League to take him above Alan Shearer's record of 10.

Aguero also scored his 175th, 176th and 177th goals in England's top-flight, taking him one clear of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

He has now scored more Premier League goals than any other foreign import, notching his 177 strikes in just 255 games.

But does that make him a superior player to Henry? It's hard to say, but many will argue that the Frenchman was a far more complete player.

And a video from Twitter user @ivan_i94 attempts to prove that the Arsenal great was better, writing as a caption: "No way certain man legit think Aguero was better than this absolutely demonic footballer."

Henry really did have it all.

Fancy flicks, mazy dribbles, passes that playmakers would be proud of, he did everything in that iconic Arsenal side.

Henry's tally of 74 assists as well as 175 goals in his 258 games - including 20 assists in just one season - is what sets him apart from Aguero.

The Frenchman was literally bagging a goal or an assist every single game for the Gunners, incredible.

Henry also won four Golden Boots compared to Aguero's haul of just one - we actually had to double check the Argentine's tally as it didn't seem true at first glance.

However, Aguero does come out on top when it comes to Premier League titles, winning four with City compared to Henry's two with Arsenal.

But team success shouldn't factor in as much as individual brilliance.

Both played in two of the greatest Premier League teams ever assembled and Henry just showed that little bit more.

He was the iconic figure of a generation and the Frenchman isn't just the greatest foreign import in Premier League history - he's the division's greatest ever player.
