Our problem position - right sided forward

Its clear Alexis plays better on the left, and we have proper centre forwards in Lacazette, Giroud, Wellbeck, its clear we need a right sided attacker, and to me right now its what we are missing.

There are a few players that can help solve our problem if AW open his eyes. Mahrez, who wanted to leave, and I'm sure would still jump at the chance to play for us.

Even Sturridge, whom I still think is a good player. These players have qualities that we currently don't have, that extra bit of unpredictability and trickery, especially playing against Burnley type teams.

Anyone agree?

A front three of:

Sanchez (asusming he stays until end season) - Lacazette - Mahrez/Sturridge

Size wise not a big front line, but much more of a threat.

The problem is how to get Front-3 playing together as a unit with telepathic understanding ... such even one of them is running into space blindfolded, he knew the ball will be delivered to him at the right pace and right time.

That was the French Spine.

Merl, even if they dont have a telephatic understanding between them, we need players who can single handedly produce a bit of magic to score or create chances. For example, while Mahrez and Vardy combined well, but Mahrez also on his own scored some unbelievable solo goals against the top teams.

Sturridge had also in the past showed he can produce a bit of magic from nothing.

We need players like this. We used to have Henry, Overmars, Pires who could do this.
