Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy are at the same level as Sergio Aguero, according to Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Kane has now scored 15 goals in the Premier League this campaign following his brace during Spurs’ 3-0 win at Norwich on Tuesday night.

Vardy, who also scored twice on Tuesday night during Leicester’s 2-0 win against Liverpool, is the league’s top goalscorer with 18 goals as his side sit top of the Premier League.

Pochettino believes that the two England internationals are on the par with the striker who is widely considered as the best in the country - Manchester City’s Aguero.

“Vardy and Kane show big quality and the same quality as Aguero,” the Argentine said.

Aguero has managed 13 goals in just 17 league appearances this campaign despite struggling for large parts through injury. The 27-year-old finished last season as Premier League top scorer and is often regarded as the best finisher in world football.

But Pochettino claims that the trio of strikers are all playing at a world-class level at the moment.

“They are all different and come from different circumstances but if today we speak about Aguero, Vardy or Kane they are some of the best goalscorers in the world. We can't hide that,” he insisted.

While Pochettino has compared his striker to Aguero, Leicester’s Claudio Ranieri has played down comparisons between his striker - Vardy - and the Argentine.

"Sergio Aguero, every year. Jamie just one. I hope he does it next season, next season, next season for us,” the Italian said.

Vardy, Kane and Aguero are all involved in the Premier League title race this season as they hope their goals lead their team to glory come May.

Vardy’s Leicester lead the way and are three points ahead of Aguero’s City while Kane’s Spurs are a further two points adrift.

Are Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy as good as Sergio Aguero?
