Top five: Premier League back-up strikers (1)

Being a Premier League back-up striker is a thankless task.

Sure, they might briefly get the limelight if they score a winning goal from the substitutes' bench, but for these unfortunate souls even that doesn't guarantee a place in the starting line-up for the following match.

Nevertheless, they are invaluable to coaches, particularly those whose sides are gunning for silverware.

Most of the successful sides in Premier League history have had multiple options in attack. Just look at Manchester United's treble-winning side of 1998/99; Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole may have been the first-choice partnership, but the role that Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played for the Red Devils during that memorable campaign cannot be understated.

These are some of the un-sung heroes of the Premier League - the back-up strikers.
