Stats: Comparing Spurs and Everton strikers

Which striker would you rather have in your team? Credit: Oulala

They are leading the Premier League golden boot race along with Alexis Sanchez, but who would you rather have in your team – Harry Kane or Romelu Lukaku?

On Sunday the two goal-scorers come head-to-head when Spurs host Ronald Koeman's men at White Hart Lane, and Oulala have helped us delve a little deeper into their stats.

Kane and Lukaku have 17 goals and four assists each in the league this season, with 12 fixtures remaining each.

Kane has played four fewer matches (21), however, than Lukaku (25) although the Toffees forward boasts a more impressive record when it comes to successful aerial duels (3.6 to 1.5 per game) and take-ons (1.9 to 0.9 per game).

Kane's conversion rate (27%) is marginally better than Lukaku's (25%), as so is his pass completion (72% to 65%), while both men share an average of 1.4 key passes per game.

Tottenham v Stoke: Line-ups

Mark Hughes keen to avoid another Tottenham thrashing

Mark Hughes admits he cannot rule out Stoke City being thumped by Tottenham once again on Sunday.

Stoke have been thrashed 4-0 at home by Spurs in each of the last two meetings between the clubs.

The most recent came last September during a sequence in which Hughes' team failed to win any of their opening seven Premier League games of the season.

But Hughes said: "We have improved markedly since that game (in September).

"I would be very surprised if the result was the same - although there is a possibility, because they are a good side.

"But we'll have to make sure we play well to make sure that doesn't happen.

"I would imagine if we start brightly, then that is the key to it. Hopefully we'll be nice and bright, sharp and ready to go."
