With his goal against Burnley on Sunday Sergio Aguero not only helped Manchester City return to the top of the Premier League table but also achieved a feat reached by only one other player in the competition's history.
Aguero's strike at Turf Moor took him to at least 20 goals for the fifth consecutive PL season.
"I'm not sure he gets the credit he deserves, Aguero," says Scholes. "He's been sensational for years.
"He's got so much quality. He's a player who can make his own goals as well, he doesn't need the ball on a plate all the time.
"He's getting stronger and better as the years go by."
It is the sixth season overall in which Aguero has scored 20 goals, having struck 23 in 2011/12. This is one behind the record of seven achieved by Alan Shearer.
