The Ultimate Attacking Trios in Football


Three can definitely be considered a magic number, especially when it comes to football. It’s for this very reason that we decided to take a look at the most potent and important trios in the game of football and what makes them so amazing.

Liverpool – The Lords of Open Space

This sensational threesome flourishes on open space and peaks when there’s room for running and attacking behind a rushed retreating defense. They perfectly fit the high-pressure ideals of Jurgen Klopp and are fully equipped to completely exploit the most innocuous change in possession. The blistering conviction and pace of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah is what makes them so deadly when they have the ball in their possession. The Liverpool trio requires open space to operate sufficiently and once they receive it, the front three is unmatched.

Manchester City – Assassins in the Penalty Area

It almost seems unfair to showcase the trio of Sergio Aguero, Leroy Sane, and Raheem Sterling given how remarkable Pep Guardiola’s entire team is at destroying opponents. However, the truth of the matter is that these three football stars are the most proficient at applying the final touch to claim victories. Their overall strength doesn’t lie in the creation of chances, but more in the conversion.

Paris Saint-Germain – The Creative All-Stars

If you believe it’s completely unfair that Ligue 1 squads need to deal with Mbappe, Kylian, and Neymar, you’d be right. To be honest, its an embarrassingly creative trio within the French league. However, what’s even more impressive is how three world-class football stars at their previous clubs have jelled and worked as a functioning unit without their egos getting in the way. Unfortunately, the squad has struggled a bit in the Champions League this season, but their incredible combination of style and skill makes them rather impossible to stop, regardless of who they are facing every week.

Barcelona – The Potent Champions

What this miniscule threesome lacks in stature, they quickly make up for in pound-for-pound brilliance and potency. Whether they are playing away or at home in Camp Nou, in the Champions League or La Liga, the three-headed monster of Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, and Lionel Messi has a nearly telepathic connection on the field, allowing them to easily extract the most from their penalty areas, even if it’s over crowded. The Barcelona threesome haven’t hit their absolute best too often but 2018 was the perfect indication of how well these three perform together, accumulating 67 goals along with 29 assists during the La Liga alone.

Tottenham Hotspur – The Superior Group

There’s no denying that this can’t be considered the conventional attacking force when you compare it to the teams mentioned above. However, where would Tottenham Hotspur be without Happy Kane, Christian Eriksen, and Dele Alli? To be completely honest, only Harry Kane can be considered a reasonably top-tier football player, but the magnificent beauty of the triple threat in Tottenham is that they each compliment each other on the field, creating perfection each and every time.

Eden Hazard Is Currently the Best Player in the Premier League

You can easily compare Eden Hazard’s performance to that of Pele and Diego Maradona after his incredible match-winning goal against Liverpool. The Belgian football star came off the bench and managed to score a phenomenal solo goal only 5 minutes from full-time to make it a 2-1 final score against Liverpool. This occurred after the header from Emerson cancelled out the opening goal from Daniel Sturridge.

Jamie Carragher on Eden Hazard


Jamie Carragher, the former Liverpool defender in the Premier League, was full of praise for the composure and strength displayed by Hazard as he managed to beat several defenders before he presented a beautiful shot past the Liverpool goalkeeper, stating that it’s reminiscent of the greatest football players in the world.

“All the best football players have the power. Think of Gianfranco Zola, Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry, and you can even go as far back as Pele and Diego Maradona. These players can’t be bullied when it comes to football. You continuously think how on earth are you going to stop them?”

“You won’t be able to knock them away from the ball, and each of these players have the strength and power in the backside and in their legs. The same can be said for Eden Hazard. When you look at the Liverpool goal, you could clearly see that he wasn’t in the best position to receive it, but he still managed to score a tremendous goal from it.”

Hazard is a superstar, there’s no denying it. In the previous domestic cup match, Hazard played in the FA Cup final where he won a penalty and managed to score from it. He won this Premier League match as well.”

Eden Hazard’s Current Contract

Eden Hazard hinted that he wanted to be transferred to Real Madrid over the summer, but the transfer failed to materialize even though the club sold Christiano Ronaldo. Jamie Carragher is suspecting that the Chelsea forward, who currently has less than two years left on his contract, will be the centre of attention in the coming months. “When January rolls around or when we get to the end of the Premier League season, there’s certainly going to be questions asked when Hazard is left with a year on his contract.”

Although Eden Hazard is quite happy with Chelsea at the moment, it won’t stop Barcelona or Real Madrid from getting their hands on him when they want him in their club. It’s extremely difficult to hold onto your star players when another club is on the hunt, especially when you consider that its every player’s dream to play for Barcelona or Real Madrid. Liverpool had Luis Suarez and Xabi Alonso, and Manchester United had Christiano Ronaldo. So if Eden Hazard gets his way and Real Madrid makes him an offer, there’s no denying that Chelsea will be in serious trouble when summer rolls around. He is undoubtedly the best player in the Premier League at the moment and only time will tell where he’ll end up.
