Harry Kane has been voted a better striker than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang


The Premier League is blessed with some of the best strikers in the world.

Two of those that are among the world's best are Harry Kane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Both men are extremely important to their clubs.

Kane has been integral to Tottenham's success since emerging as a first-team regular in 2014.

Since making his debut, he's played 278 appearances and scored an impressive 181 goals.

His goals guided Spurs to the Champions League final last season and he's on course to break Alan Shearer's record of 260 Premier League goals.

Aubameyang is also crucial to Arsenal.

The Gunners have been poor in recent years, but that's not the Gabonese striker's fault.

Since signing for Arsenal for £56m in 2018, he's scored 61 goals in 97 games.


He won the Premier League Golden Boot with 22 goals in 2018/19 and, with 17 goals already in 2019/20, he's in with a chance of retaining that trophy.

But when it comes down to it, who do football fans think is a better player?

We asked fans on our Facebook page who they would rather trust to lead the line.

77k fans voted And Kane emerged as the victor, attracting 58% of the vote.

I've got to say, I agree. Kane is a brilliant striker.

He has all the attributes needed to be a world-class centre-forward.

The Englishman is strong, good in the air, is technically brilliant and knows where the goal is.

Yes, he's not the quickest striker in the world and Aubameyang definitely has a pace advantage.

But, in terms of being an all-round striker, Kane has the edge.


Their stats from the 2019/20 season also points to Kane being slightly better.

Per WhoScored.com, the Englishman is averaging a goal every 0.68 games, has two assists to his name and has recorded an average rating of 7.46.

Aubameyang is averaging a goal every 0.58 games, has one assist and has recorded an average rating of 6.98.

No disrespect to Aubameyang, who is an incredible striker in his own right. It's close, but I feel as if Kane is slightly better.
