Stats show Romelu Lukaku edging Tottenham star as league’s best young striker
Stats show Everton star Romelu Lukaku has the edge over Tottenham talisman Harry Kane
Two of the Premier League’s hottest young hitmen go head to head on Sunday as Everton welcome Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.
The above infographic from leading fantasy football site Football Fanager shows that Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has got the edge on his Tottenham rival Harry Kane ahead of their crunch clash.
The Belgian has bagged more career league and international goals, and also has found the back of the net more this season.
In fact, Lukaku scored twice in the Merseyside outfit’s 4-3 defeat by Stoke City on Monday afternoon, netting nine times in eight games.
However, Kane scores more regularly and also broke the 20-goal barrier in the league last season – something Lukaku has never done.
But the England international failed to find the net in Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over 10-man Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday evening.
Lukaku and Kane have been prolific during the festive season, but who’ll come out on top this weekend?
