The best defence is a good offence.
In football, if a team is capable of banging in a few goals every match, not only will it ensure the win, but it means that they are able to keep the ball in the opposition’s half for a longer period of time, reducing their chances of scoring as well. This can be a game winner in the sport, especially in crunch matches. This falls largely on the shoulders of the strikers and/or the midfielders that are able to create an opportunity for their team.
Until recently, it was striker partnerships that were talked about, with teams favouring two men up front. From the likes of Cole-Yorke and Henry-Bergkamp to Rooney-Tevez and most recently Liverpool’s famed SAS, good partnerships have always tormented defences, wreaking havoc and bagging the goals. But with a global shift from the old two striker system to the 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3, attacking combinations are mostly trios now.
