West Bromwich Albion.
For this week, i have dedicated my post to the possible player combinations we must watch out for.
Have chosen 6 combos. Lets have a look.
1) Luis Suarez & Daniel Sturridge:
With over 40+ goals and 20+ assists, this combination is the most deadly and lethal all over Europe.
When one stops scoring, the other one starts.
Suarez looked like he is on a roller coaster relay race
When he seemed to reduce the scoring spree, Stuirridge took the baton and said, “Let me continue with the race”
And guess what has happened ever since?
He has scored 8 matches in a row.
Also Liverpool now have amassed 70 goals in 27 league games, which beats Manchester City who have 69 goals in 26 games. Now that’s a thought every team must take seriously.
I’m sure there will be at least one goal or an assist by these two this week.
Anyone care to deny?
2) Christian Eriksen & Emmanuel Adebayor:
Eriksen had been dropped by Mr Tim Sherwood last match.
The result was that it took over 80+ minutes for Tottenham to have a proper goal scoring chance hit on target.
Even with Adebayor’s riding form, Sherwood’s men looked under par with their performance.
Now, many of the pundits termed this as a bad day for the spurs, with some saying it was the absence of their main play-maker Eriksen.
Paulinho has been good too, but not that influential as Eriksen has been for the team.
He has created many more chances than Dembele and Paulinho.
Thus, if he is played this weekend, do expect this combo to give Spurs a much needed win for their chance of entering the Top 4.
3) Santi Cazorla & Olivier Giroud:
Santi Cazorla has been in prime form these past weeks, trying to ease out Mesut Ozil’s responsibilities which have been doubled by the absence of Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott.
Else where, Giroud has been trying to make various attempts on goal and he finally succeeded by scoring 2 and assisting 1 last week.
Cazorla is that spark which can give the Gunners the much needed boost and points needed for the fight of the League title.
Giroud has the ability to not only score but also be unselfish and assist his team mates.
Until Ramsey arrives, they will have to keep winning and garner as many points as they can in order to keep the pressure on Chelsea and Manchester City.
4) Shane Long & Nikica Jelavic:
Hull City have seen a good partnership forming between their strikers, i.e Long & Jelavic.
The past few weeks have seen a new Hull team playing sensible football.
Not only are the strikers combining , but also the play makers of the team i.e Livermore and Huddlestone have been good too.
With Elmohamady showing some improvement with his run-ins inside the box, i don’t see a reason why Hull can’t keep improving.
The fight for the Europa league spot is what Hull must try, and these 4 players will be the reason why they will achieve that spot.
5)Adam Lallana & Rickie Lambert:
Lallana has been phenomenal this season for the Saints.
Southampton have been riding on this player’s form and also on the form of their strikers Rodriguez & Lambert.
Both have been consistent for the Saints this season and have contributed around 20 goals for the club.
That’s not all.
Fonte, Lovren & Lallana have equally contributed thus reducing the burden of the strikers to score every match.
With such diverse goal scoring line up, Saints look set for another ticket to the Europa league again.
6) Pablo Hernandez & Wilfried Bony:
Now, this pair is not like the others.
They haven’t scored many goals, but have been there for the team as and when required.
Hernandez has been the highest in terms of assists in the midfielders section whereas Bony has been consistent in scoring his goals with a total of 10 for the team.
Hernandez hasn’t been given a lot of playing time per match which is of high concern as according to stats, he has been involved in many goal scoring chances.
Thus its advisable that he be played as you never know, Bony just needs a clear space to shoot which can be provided by Hernandez!
Lets see how many of these combinations keep continuing their form!!
