Indeed. Although to be fair ayew playing off of benteke with zaha and Townsend on the wings would be decent. Feel sorry for ayew being so harshly judged in a role heís utterly unsuited for.

Benteke is benteke and changes the way we play and more importantly how the other teams has to defend even without touching the ball. The aerial threat is there and we have the ability to cross. Without benteke they donít even bother stopping us having the ball in crossing areas because we will invariably try to pass it into nonexistent spaces in the area or dribble. With benteke there a cross is dangerous and so defenders come out to close down midfielders earlier, block the cross etc.. then zaha, Meyer, Townsend, Pva, ayew, jimmy... whoever get the space we havenít had.

Ayew is back up to zaha, an option wide, off of benteke or part of a front three. He is not the ******* target man heís been asked to play

Sorloth is risky as he doesnít seem ready and needs to improve hold up play, heading etc
