They are both spearheading their team's title challenge, but who edges our head-to-head battle?
Let battle commence...
Few would argue they are at least two of the best strikers in the Premier League and on Saturday, Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa will go head-to-head at the Etihad.
But how do their Premier League stats this season – and overall – compare?
They are separated by just 127 days in age – Sergio being the elder of the two 28-year-olds.
Overall Premier League stats…
With 112 goals in 161 games, nobody playing in the Premier League can match Sergio's scoring feats to date. Costa's 42 goals in 67 means he isn't too far away in goals-per-games, but his assists percentage is higher with 13 - half of Sergio's 26, but in fewer games.
Aguero 161 112 26
Costa 67 42 13
So far this season it's neck and neck with both players on 10 goals - Costa has had two more starts with Kun appearing once from the bench
Aguero 12 10 0
Costa 13 10 4
Premier League wins/losses (overall)
Sergio is comfortably ahead in the overall record of Premier League wins and losses - of his 161 appearances he's lost just 29 times - a defeat every 5.5 games, while Costa loses one every 4.6 games.
How the goals were scored…
Both players favour their right foot, with approximately one in five of Aguero's goals scored with his left boot. Costa is slightly less with approximately one goal in four with his left - neither are prolific in the air with 11 goals in total between them.
