The Premier League has been witness to some classy double acts over the years. With the new season well underway, some interesting and unexpected partnerships have emerged in England.
Whether attacking or defensive, a solid partnership can be the trump card for any team. Based on their performances so far, and overall contribution to their teams, here’s a list of 3 Premier league duos who have been dominant in the league so far.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery realized the double whammy these players can deliver and has started them together in some league matches. And his decision paid off. As seen in their recent fixture, when Auba was substituted in the second half, he linked up beautifully with Lacazette, and both of them managed to score a brace against Fulham.
Clearly, this season is finally going to be the one where Arsenal will once again have a deadly duo of their own after the Henry and Bergkamp era.
David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger are central to Chelsea defence that has only let in 5 goals in 8 matches. Luiz has been a constant source of accurate long balls, while Rudiger has been a rock in the defence, making crucial interceptions, including the goal-line clearance against Liverpool.
If they keep up their performances, we might be able to witness the emergence of a new defensive partnership in the Premier League.
Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling have scored 9 goals and assisted 4 more.
Guardiola’s 4-3-3 formation allows Sterling and Aguero to interlink regularly, and with players like Sane, Mahrez, De Bruyne, and Silva yet to hit top gear, it will be this unlikely duo of winger and striker which will torment the opposition defence for the foreseeable future.
