Head-to-Head

Head-to-Head: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) vs Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)
6th February 2016

Saturday’s first helping of Premier League football is unarguably the biggest clash of the weekend as current league leaders Leicester City visit second-placed Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon (12:45).

The Citizens, who lie three points adrift of the Foxes at the summit, will be hoping star striker Sergio Aguero can continue firing on all cylinders having scored six goals in his last four outings in all competitions.

Meanwhile the visitors; who drew 0-0 with City at the King Power Stadium back in December, will rely on their own in-form forward in the presence of Jamie Vardy, who is the Premier League’s top goalscorer this season with 18 strikes.

So with both strikers set to go head-to-head once more this afternoon, here is how Aguero and Vardy match up so far this term…
