The 4-3-3 formation is popular at Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham but who are the best attacking trio in Premier League.

Premier League has a diverse makeup. With managers hailing from across the globe, they bring their personal flavor to the most watched domestic football competition.

Teams line-up with three defenders and two, focusing on attack. But there is one thing common across Premier League, majority of teams play with three attackers.

A center forward who is ably supported by two inside forwards, or two wingers, or a combination of two.

If you are Pep Guardiola, you are seen making false 9 fashionable again. Klopp views the game differently, and so does Frank Lampard.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer routinely sends out three forwards but his approach to the game is markedly different. Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho continues to balance injury issues to send a competent side on the pitch.

So, who are the top-3 front three in Premier League this term? Here are our selections.


If we have to solely look at front three, Chelsea have to be there. A lot has been said about Frank Lampard doing a great job in his first year in charge of the Blues, and we send more praise his way.

Out of all the sides, he has been forced to rotate his attacking options the most. Only William has started every time when he has been available, while his teammates have taken up the other two positions.

The fact that Chelsea overcame their goal scoring slump and are brushing away sides again, the Blues make our top 3.

Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been called tactically novice when analysts compare him to his predecessors. But he has managed to shape them in his image.

Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James and Mason Greenwood form one of the most devastating partnerships in the Premier League. Thanks to their efforts, they managed the double of Manchester City and swept away Chelsea in the season opener.


Manchester City do not make our top list thanks as they do not offer anything different from Liverpool. Pep Guardiola will spice things up tactically but they have not been that proficient in front of goal. But the same thing cannot be said about the Reds.

Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are the most feared attacking trio not only in the Premier League but also in Europe.

Firmino has not been as potent as in previous seasons but his contributions remain unmatched. Meanwhile Salah and Mane continue to fight for Premier League Golden Boot award.
