Manchester City have assembled quite possibly the most intimidating front line in football the world over. The only club that could surpass them in this area would be Barcelona, of course. Having Lionel Messi and David Villa alone puts them into the conversation.
However, City has four incredibly gifted, diverse and talented players up front. It's quite frightening actually. They could feasibly play any style and in any formation they choose along their front line.
Carlos Tevez shared the Golden Boot title last season, netting 20 goals for City in the Premier League. Tevez provides an eye for goal with his speed and finishing ability.
David Silva has created a formidable partnership in his short time in Manchester with Tevez. Silva can navigate his way in and around the box providing through balls, crosses and goals for the club.
Edin Dzeko came over from the Bundesliga club Wolfsburg during this year's January transfer window and has settled in nicely. The former Bundesliga Man of the Year has plenty of goal scoring ability and provides a change of pace in the style of attack he brings to the front line. Dzeko also has European experience, which doesn't hurt.
Sergio Aguero is the new kid on the block and boy-oh-boy did he impress in his debut. Aguero scored a brace—including a magnificent strike from outside the box—while also providing an acrobatic assist off the line. Like Dzeko, Aguero came to Manchester with Champions League appearances and goals on his resume.
Any and every back line will struggle keeping this fabulous foursome in check.
