England rivals? Tottenham's Harry Kane is outdoing Arsenal's Danny Welbeck

Welbeck & Bonucci England vs Italy Euro 2012

A look at how Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur strikers compare.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane's England senior call-up appears inevitable, for his current form demands a chance under Roy Hodgson.

He will join his North London rival Danny Welbeck, who has been impressing for Arsenal this season.

While both strikers have found the net in European competition, and Welbeck for the Three Lions senior side, a direct comparison can be taken of their Premier League performances.

Danny Welbeck Arsenal / Man Utd 4 2 28 83% 9% 18 1,399

Despite playing 400 less minutes of Premier League football this season, Kane has scored three more goals than Welbeck.

The pair have the same number of assists, although Welbeck has create substantially more chances.

Perhaps most eye-opening in terms of their goalscoring is Kane's comparative ruthlessness to Welbeck, scoring with 18 per cent of his shots compared to Welbeck's 9 per cent.

Welbeck's performances do not have him at risk of losing his place in the England squad, but Kane's displays warrant his inclusion - and he has a real chance of displacing the Arsenal star in the actual team if he keeps his form up and Roy Hodgson elects it's a case of either or.
