The best front three in the Premier League - ranked

Footy Area brings you a compilation of the best front three players in the Premier League this season.

Ever since Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar tore up La Liga together for Barca, the ‘front three’ has been a trend in modern football.

We’ve had Neymar-Cavani-Mbappe, we’ve had Ronaldo-Benzema-Bale, we’ve even had Higuain-Dybala-Mandzukic if we’re really stretching.


Editor’s Picks:


But who takes the mantle of the best attacking trident in the Premier League? Well…


6. Arsenal – Aubameyang, Lacazette, Pépé

Arsenal’s forwards are frightening when on song

These three haven’t played together very often, with Pépé and Lacazette forced to fight for a regular spot due to the impressive number of attacking options at the Emirates Stadium.

Although Willian, Nketiah and Saka provide excellent depth in attack, there’s no doubt that Aubameyang, Pépé and Lacazette complete the best three for Arsenal.

Aubameyang is one of the best goalscorers in the world, while Lacazette has started the season brightly and looks ready to take the fight to Aubameyang.

Pépé however has shown only glimpses of his true promise but Arteta is confident he will develop in to a star in future.


3. Chelsea – Pulisic, Havertz, Werner

The best front three in the Premier League - ranked
Werner and Havertz together is a terrifying prospect

It is only reasonable to feel the heartache Frank Lampard feels this days.

It’s a real case of square pegs in round holes for the Chelsea manager at Stamford Bridge.

As he is struggles to find a way to fit all his big money signings into one team, while staying loyal to the youngsters who handed him a Champions League spot last season.

We’ve seen both Timo Werner and Kai Havertz deployed through the middle and out wide, and neither have quite hit the ground running in the Premier League.

After an adjustment period, however, these two, and fellow Bundesliga alumnus Christian Pulisic, should tear defenses up.

If not, there are other options. A lot of them.


4. Tottenham – Son, Kane, Bale

The best front three in the Premier League - ranked
Son and Kane go together like salt and pepper

It’s not unusual to admit that Spurs’ have had a 10/10 in the transfer window this summer, but it would be unusual if you think they haven’t improved gigantically over the summer.

The return of Gareth Bale, at least, improves their attacking options thirty-fold.

Spurs have the best striker in England at the moment, while they also boast two of the most electric wingers in the country too.

In theory, their attack is as frightening as any, but we are yet to see what Heung-min Son, Harry Kane and Bale can do as a trident.


3. Manchester City – Sterling, Agúero, Mahrez

The best front three in the Premier League - ranked
City’s rotating cast of forwards can give any defence a nightmare

Remember Sergio Agúero? The fourth-top scorer in Premier League history, who we haven’t seen since June due to a knee injury?

Well yeah, he’s still at Manchester City. In Agúero and Raheem Sterling, Pep Guardiola’s team have two of the most efficient goalscorers in English football.

While Riyad Mahrez is up there as one of the most underrated wingers around. Quite the trio.


2. Manchester United – Rashford, Martial, Greenwood

United’s holy trinity have some work to do after a tricky start to the season

Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood scored 64 goals between them last term. Edinson Cavani has some work to do.

United’s now established trio compliment each other perfectly, and pose a fearsome threat despite a slow start to 2020/21.

Expect them fit and firing before long, especially now they have Cavani to keep them on their toes.


1. Liverpool – Mané, Salah, Firmino

Two of Liverpool’s fabled trio celebrate scoring against Arsenal

Liverpool’s ascent to the top of English football just wouldn’t have happened without their three front men ripping teams to pieces.

Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino need no extra introduction.

They’ve been the most consistent attacking line in Europe ever since Salah arrived from Roma, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Let’s not get carried away too much by that Aston Villa result, these lads are the best front three in the Premier League.
