The Premier League has been going on for a long time now and over the seasons, there have been plenty of superb attacking partnerships that have taken the league by storm.
However, with one of the craziest January transfer windows of all time, this season in the English top flight, we have seen some attacking duos play whom we never imagined to see together in the same team whilst playing in England.
Here, we take a look at four unexpected attacking duos in the Premier League this season.
4. Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott
Rooney and Walcott played together for England and now have been reunited at Everton, forming a partnership that no one expected when they were playing for Manchester United and Arsenal respectively.
In fact, Walcott, upon signing for Everton last month, revealed that Rooney played an important role in convincing him of the move to Goodison Park.
3. Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku
Not many expected Sanchez to sign for Manchester United but that is exactly what he did last month, joining the Red Devils from Arsenal.
The Chilean’s move means he will play in attack with Romelu Lukaku, an attacking duo no one expected to see. Both of them scored in the recent win over Huddersfield Town and given their qualities, they are expected to link up well together.
2. Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard
After so many years with Arsenal, Giroud finally left the club after falling down the pecking order, making a move to London rivals Chelsea where he is expected to link up with their star player Eden Hazard.
Hazard and Giroud, an unlikely pair, can be the ones to salvage Chelsea’s season and it will be exciting to see this unexpected duo lead Chelsea’s attack.
1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan combined well during the match, with Mkhitaryan assisting Aubameyang’s debut goal and that could be the sign of things to come for the Gunners (passionate Arsenal supporter) would have expected.
The duo started the recent win over Everton, with Mkhitaryan assisting Aubameyang’s debut goal and that could be the sign of things to come for the Gunners.
