Aguero and Shearer are joint third on the list of players to have scored the most goals for one Premier League club behind Wayne Rooney for Manchester United (183) and Thierry Henry for Arsenal (175). But Shearer also scored 112 league goals for Blackburn - leaving Aguero some way behind the former England captain."Sergio is the best scorer in Manchester City's history," added Silva."He's a legend not only for Manchester City but also for the Premier League, if not the best striker in the world then one of the best."You have to admire players that score 30 goals and next season they don't rest, they want to score 30 or 40 again. We have to admire that and be happy to have him and enjoy it."If he reaches that level it will be even better because everyone knows how important Alan Shearer was for English football and for the Premier League."

How does he compare to the other top scorers?
Shearer is some way clear of the rest of the field, with Rooney second on 208 goals. Aguero is 10th on the all-time scoring list, but - fitness permitting - is likely to move up several places this season.He has scored five goals in seven league appearances this season - and has scored at least 20 in each of the previous four Premier League seasons.If he hits the 20-goal mark this season, he would equal Robbie Fowler in sixth place with 163 goals.
