Earlier today we learnt that Danny Welbeck could miss England’s opener against Italy through injury, and it is widely expected that Raheem Sterling will take his place in the starting XI. Sky Sports have done a stat comparison of the pair, take a look below.
As you can see, Sterling has featured in more games and played more minutes, but the pair have scored the same amount of goals. Sterling is predominantly a winger, and although Danny Welbeck is a forward he has been deployed out wide for the majority of his games this season.
As you’d expect, Sterling has attempted far more dribbles, but rather surprisingly more tackles too.
