Sergio Aguero says that English players are more likely to be awarded decisions than foreigners.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has hit out at Premier League referees, accusing them of being biased towards English players.

City came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage on Saturday in a game that saw both Carlos Tevez and Pablo Zabaleta denied penalties.

After the game the Argentine forward blasted the officials and insisted that English players are more likely to win decisions.

"We just play our game and the referee's job is to know who is tricking him and who is not," said Aguero.

"There is a little bit of privilege with players who come from this country. Here in England, there are almost as many foreign players as English players and it's not right that some have a privilege that others don't.

"If they do, it's not good for anyone."

The Premier League champions remain undefeated in the league this season.
