Can you win the league without a WC striker?

I Know most people are going to answer this with "not with wenger as manager", but leaving that aside, do you think we need a aguero or costa to win the league?
Typically giroud and lacazette and co. Should be enough to put away the smaller times and am sure there are other avenues of scoring goals in big games.
I also feel we havent put our faith in giroud and played to his strengths. Leicester played hoof ball to 2 players and kept getting goals and then shutting teams down with a midfield of drinkwater and kante.
Now i know we play a different style, but we could do something similar and back a system.
Last year he did give alexis that chance but he just refused to stay upfront. Maybe that won't be a problem now with lacazette. Even welbeck had that tendency to drop too deep.

How many on here think it can actually work if we back the player for a good run of games?

Vardy performed at a world class level in the season they won the League, so bad argument.
