Given the undoubted quality Aguero possesses I thought I'd do some reading on his Wikipedia.

Turns out Aguero has scored 153 Premier League goals since Aug 2011. Harry has scored 119 since Aug 2014 (and has 122 in total where he picked up a few goals from those sub appearances the season before). That is essentially one season's worth of goals difference between Kane & Aguero in three whole seasons of time. Insane numbers he's posting.

If he stays fit, he will beat Shearer's record.

N.B. He's due a hat-trick soon too.

Without a doubt great numbers by Harry, but Aguero has been injured a fair amount. Be interesting to see games played/goals scored.

True.

Aguero: 223 Games, 153 Goals: 0.69 per game
Kane: 171 Games, 122 Goals: 0.71 per game
You might find Aguero has more sub appearances. I think his goals per minute ratio is probably slightly better than HK's. This is me just guessing though so could be a load of balony

Kane Aguero Henry are the most profilic by quite a way. The only 3 over 0.60 Henry is 0.68. Shearer is next on 0.59 although obviously he had the longest career and numbers tend to tail off with age.

Aguero: 16,624 minutes all time: 155 Goals = 107.25 minutes per goal
Kane: 13,870 minutes all time: 122 Goals = 113.68 minutes per goal
(Source: transfermarkt)

As much as there are caveats to Aguero's stats (injuries, sub appearances), there are also to Kane's (I would say - he's also had a few injuries and we know that has affected him this year).

Aguero was also signed for 30m as an elite pro. Kane hit the ground running from the youth team.

In any case, Aguero wins this round, but still a close one.

I'd still have Kane over Aguero though, bias aside. Just an all-round perfect player

Kane never scored in August until this season either!

Eden Hazard with 10 goals and 9 assists, what a player he is. Such a shame we were close to signing him just before Chelsea won the champions league and he signed for them. Imagine Kane up front with Son, Eriksen and Hazard behind, drool!
Almost signed Salah when he played for Basel. We were the first ones to actually see who he was.
