Zaha & Townsend as a forward line.

Could this be a potential front line without us even knowing? I Like Benteke and he offers good aerial threats but he does make us very one dimensional. Could Andros & Wilf potentially be our first choice forward line with Benteke giving us an alternative option if needed?

They simply couldn’t handle Wilf and Andros today mixing it up.

Thoughts?

The thought running through my head was what Benteke would have been thinking spectating. I like him when used well, but this was the best we have looked for a long long time.

It's an option, but frankly I expect Benteke to improve under Hodgspn too. Used the right way, he's quality.

Benteke with Zaha and Townsend around him should be a fantastic forward three.

They were a joy to watch, and between them created enough for us to have got 2/3 more even.

I believe wilf started out as a CF as a kid? I wonder if Andros did too?

Yep. Taking the emphasis away from his height and heading ability, he scored some sublime goals when he played for Villa.

They were superb today, but they were facing a 343, and will have had more space than usual, and more possibility to get beyond their marker than a 4. But yes, we looked way better with today's attack than the lacklustre Benteke.

Most skilful players play up front as kids, as they've got the ability with the ball. It's where they've played as pro's that counts though, not as 15 year olds.

Benteke's work rate off the ball is so low we lose the benefit of having the extra player in midfield. Wilf and Andros chase down, run the channels and take on full-backs as well as get into goalscoring positions. That mean's we're better as a unit than with Benteke up front.

At the very least when he does come back, he'll have to fight for his place - and hopefully that'll mean upping his work rate.

Playing two up top makes us much more balanced. Both Wilf & Andros were outstanding today.

A lot of it was about how Roy played them too. Individually strong and well set up tactically ... nice

Just think of a front three of Wilf, Townsend and Benteke with Luka, Cabaye and RLC behind.
