West Bromwich Albion striker Berahino has been in impressive form, scoring five goals in the Premier League.
So how does Berahino compare to the player he could be leading the line with England with, and opposing in North London?

This season Berahino's Premier League form is unrivalled by Welbeck, scoring at a far faster rate of a goal every 125 minutes compared to Welbeck's 390.
This clinical form is emphasised by the fact the two players have averaged a shot every 30 minutes, and Berahino firing 48 per cent of his efforts on target compared to Welbeck's 38.
Berahino also edges a better pass accuracy, although Welbeck proves superior in terms of chance creation, with a key pass every 65 minutes compared to Berahino's 157.
Rather than running down Welbeck, the figures largely talk up Berahino's potential and current performance. It is little wonder a side like Tottenham, in need of a quality striker, are linked with his services.
