Arsenal meet Manchester City in a titanic top-of-the-table clash at The Emirates on Monday night.

And, as these statistics from leading daily fantasy sport site Football Fanager show, key midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Yaya Toure couldn’t be more closely matched.

Welsh wizard Ramsey marginally leads midfield maestro Toure in the goal stakes after a return of three goals in 12 Premier League games, whilst the City midfielder has netted twice in 14 top-flight appearances.

However, the Ivorian beats the Welshman on assists after setting up his City team-mates for five goals, whilst Ramsey is responsible for creating just one goal for an Arsenal colleague.

But take a closer look at their other key statistics which include assists per game, passes per game and pass completion, and the rivals are almost identical ahead of the crunch clash at Emirates Stadium.

Who will come out on top in Monday’s crunch fixture: young Arsenal starlet Ramsey or experienced City midfielder Toure?
