Even if two were penalties, Sergio Aguero claiming the award for Premier League player of the week is simply a no-brainer.

Call it a double brace. Call it a haul. Just don’t call it anything other than the most impressive job of the week: Aguero caught lightning in a bottle and started discussions about whether he needs to be considered among the absolute best in the world.
