Suarez & Sturridge, RVP & Rooney, Who has the best Premier League strike partnership?

05 November 2013 09:41

We have been blessed this season with an abundance of attacking talent in the Barclays Premier League. Individually there are perhaps eleven striker capable of getting 15+ goals this campaign. Christian Benteke, Roberto Soldado, Olivier Giroud and Loic Remy just to name a few. But which two team mates are going to take the league by storm? There are three contenders for best strike partnership in my eyes.

The first is Liverpool's front two, beautifully nicknamed SAS. Deadly. Quick. Incredible. Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez are out of this world. They have developed an almost telepathic understanding, which is even more impressive as Sturridge only arrived at Anfield at the beginning or the year and Luis Suarez's ban. Individually they are awesome, together nigh on unstoppable. Between the two of them they have already scored 14 goals in the league, helping Liverpool to a great start this season. If SAS can keep firing the goals then Liverpool will have a superb season.

The second is Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie. United haven't had the most successful start but that isn't due to lack of goals. Rooney and Van Persie have already got an impressive 11 goals this season. Individually they have been the two most consistent goal scorers in the Premier League for many years. David Moyes has found a system where they both can play together and both score, something that even the great Sir Alex Ferguson struggled with sometimes. If Manchester United are to challenge for the title this season these two attacking geniuses will be the reason why.

Number three is Sergio “Kun” Aguero and Alvaro Negredo from Manchester City. I think that Manchester City are the favourites to win the title this season and their two skilful strikers are the main reason. 12 goals between them so far this campaign is a great return from a front two who only started playing together this pre-season. They read each others game so well and know where the other one is so well. Were a big part in the demolition of Norwich this weekend and I am confident they will do the same to other teams this season.

There is a lot of time for this to change, especially with the January transfer looming in the not so distant future. Can Arsenal buy a top striker to partner Giroud? Can Spurs find a striking soul-mate for Soldado? Or will Roman Abramovich give Mourinho a late Christmas present in the form of a goal scoring double.

Whatever happens this campaign is unfolding superbly and I, like many other football fanatics around the globe, look forward to watching in anticipation the developments of the season.
