Luis Suarez versus Sergio Aguero?

The debate as to who is the best striker in the world is tipped in Suarez’s favour. He is, after all, coming off the back of a season in which he scored 59 goals for Barcelona.

Aguero reminded us all of his incredible talent during Manchester City’s 4-0 win over West Brom on Saturday. The Argentine struck a brace to take his tally for the season to 13 goals.

He is, in Alan Shearer’s eyes, the only world-class player in the Premier League.

"When you look at his record, when you look at some of the goals that he can score, the goals that he has scored, he's world class,” Shearer said on Match of the Day.

But would he start for Barcelona? Probably not.

With Neymar on the left, Suarez down the middle and Lionel Messi floating just behind him, the Spanish champions possess arguably the finest front three in Europe.

One similarity

Messi has had the fortune of playing with both Suarez and Aguero, so there’s probably not a player in the world who’s opinion on the pair holds as much substance as his.

He wasn’t willing to name the player he thinks is better, but he did explain the one similarity between the two strikers.

Both can decide a game.

“Kun is a very simple and easy-going person, a great lad and, as a striker, one of the best,” the five-time Ballon d’Or winner said, via The Sun. “As is Luis.

“They are different but, if you want to look at it like that, either of them can decide a game. They are both very decisive.”

Decisive is an apt word to describe Aguero and Suarez. Give them a yard of space and they’ll punish you, as West Brom found out on Saturday and La Liga defences discover pretty much every weekend.
