On Sunday, the top four play each other at the same time for only the sixth time in Premier League history, with Spurs visiting Man City and Arsenal hosting Leicester.

It promises to be an exciting and potentially telling Sunday for the title race, with Man City and Spurs looking to their leading strikers for inspiration.

The stats show that Aguero has enjoyed a better minutes-per-goal ratio than Kane, scoring one more goal despite featuring in seven fewer matches because of injury. On the other hand, Kane boasts more key passes per match, together with a slightly more favourable take-on rate and shot accuracy.

Among the other notable stats, ten of Aguero's 14 goals have come at the Etihad, while eight of Kane's 15 have been scored away from White Hart Lane.

Lennon wants Bolton survival for Gartside

Bolton manager Neil Lennon wants his players to honour long-serving chairman Phil Gartside by staying in the Championship.

Gartside died from cancer on Wednesday at the age of 63, three months after ill health forced him to step away from his duties at the club.

I'd like to think the players would make a stand for Phil now and do something positive in his memory. And that is to survive.

We've given ourselves a foothold in the race. We've got some difficult fixtures to negotiate but there's an extra motivation now - as if we needed any more.

I know some of the players were close to Phil as well and had a great relationship with him so hopefully through all these bad times there might be something good to come out of it in terms of driving the club forward.

– Neil Lennon
