Elton John is a better singer songwriter
Phil Collins is a much better musician. His drumming chops are stunning. Elton John's piano playing is ok, nothing amazing like Collins on drums.
If you don't believe me, listen to "Dukes Travels" or "Los Endos"
When Peter Gabriel hired Phil Collins, they tried several guys, he said, "I could tell by the way he sat at the drums, and took command of the seat and set", that he was going to hire him before he heard a single stick hit the pads.
