"striker for that level ". Not sure mate, he is a goal scorer. That's it. He doesn't do much else. He doesn't create anything for himself or others. Infact watch the first 10 min against Burnley. He will be the reason most of the attacks breakdown or slow down.


Micheal Owen also was a goal scorer who didn't do much else.[/quote]
Nope his passing was still better than Auba.

But that is of course irrelevant. Forget poachers like owen, Raul even Dennis bergkamp would struggle in this era of football.

You need strikers who can also defend and play on their own, there is also no pure nos 10 role, CBs need to be able to pass long well, keepers need to be good with their feet and play as a sweeper.

The game has come a long way. Drogba playing as a lone center forward set the bench mark for what a striker is supposed to do on his own and changed the game.

The game has come a long way. Ozil struggles because of the same reason, as does james Rodriquez and the now extinct kaka.
