BBC Sport - Sunderland 1-4 Man City: Sergio Aguero among the best - Pellegrini

Aguero in world top five - Pellegrini

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says striker Sergio Aguero is one of the five best players in the world after his side's 4-1 win away at Sunderland.

Sunderland went ahead when Connor Wickham fired past Joe Hart but Argentina forward Aguero equalised with an unstoppable 16-yard finish before Stevan Jovetic fired through ex-City keeper Costel Pantilimon's legs. Pablo Zabaleta increased the Man City's lead after the break, before Aguero fired his 14th league goal of the season to make it 4-1.

The win made it three straight top-flight wins for the defending champions and was City's first league win at the Stadium of Light since 2008.
