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.

Full details are yet to be revealed but the matches City play will be in the International Champions Cup, a friendly tournament series which annually features some of the world's glamour clubs.

The competition is likely to be among the first tests for new manager Pep Guardiola, who will take over from current boss Manuel Pellegrini at the end of this season.

The announcement was made in a press release detailing a number of initiatives the club are undertaking to celebrate Chinese New Year and which further emphasises the club's growing links with the Asian country.
