Arsenal v Tottenham: Stats show Olivier Giroud thrashing Harry Kane
Olivier Giroud is scoring at more than double the rate of Tottenham rival Harry Kane this season
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is scoring at more than double the rate of Tottenham rival Harry Kane heading into Sunday’s north London derby at Emirates Stadium.
An infographic produced by fantasy sports site Football Fanager shows that the Frenchman tops the Premier League when it comes to his goals-per-minute ratio this season, Spurs striker Kane is well down the list in 12th position.
Arsenal and Spurs meet at the Emirates on Sunday, and Giroud goes into the game having scored a goal every 88.5 minutes in the top-flight.
Meanwhile, despite netting against Aston Villa on Monday night, Kane has only scored once every 190 minutes.
Elsewhere, in-form Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy runs Giroud close, scoring every 89.3 minutes. The Foxes striker has now scored in eight games in a row; a record bettered only by Manchester United legend Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero also possesses an impressive record, scoring every 91.3 minutes.
Currently injured Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson, and Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez round off the top five, scoring every 108.6 and 111.3 minutes respectively.
