Dimitar Berbatov v Carlos Tevez in 2010/2011

Manchester United’s Berbatov leads the scoring charts but Manchester City’s Tevez is the better all-round player.

Carlos Tevez has been involved in more goals than any other player in the Premier League this season, having scored 18 times and delivered five assists.

Tevez may trail Berbatov by one goal in the scoring department, but it’s the Argentine who is more of a threat in all departments of the game. He shoots more and generally sees more of the ball than the Bulgarian. He also crosses, dribbles and tackles more, putting in a lot of effort to chase down opponents.

Berbatov hasn’t scored against any of the top five sides this season (Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur) but on a positive note for the Red Devils he has been much more prolific at home where he has bagged 15 of his 19 goals, which included two hat-tricks and a five-goal performance against Blackburn Rovers last November.

However, United fans will be wary of Tevez’s impact: he is the top goalscorer away from home in the Premier league this season with eight goals.
