Manchester United have possibly the best front three world football in Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie, according to their Old Trafford teammate Ander Herrera.
The Spaniard was speaking to Manchester United magazine Inside United when he was asked about his ambitions for this season after an impressive start to his career with the Red Devils since making a £29million move from Athletic Bilbao.
Herrera outlined his plans to get himself among the goals more often, as well as racking up some assists to help send Louis van Gaal's side bad into the Champions League next season. The latter of these ambitions, Herrera believes, should not be too difficult with the firepower at Van Gaal's disposal.
"I want to try to score more goals. It's very important for the midfielders," he says in the magazine interview, quoted by the Daily Express.
“I like assists as well and I think we have maybe the best three strikers in the world here in Rooney, van Persie and Falcao.
"Juan [Mata], Angel [Di Maria], Adnan [Januzaj], Daley [Blind], Fletch [Darren Fletcher] and me are all going to help them try to score, and if I score of course I'll be very happy."
There was an argument for Van Persie to her labelled the best centre-forward in world football a couple of years ago, when he won the Premier League golden boot for second season running and fired Manchester United to the title in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season in charge.
Last season was nowhere near as productive, however, and so far this season he has struggled for consistency. Something similar could be said about Falcao, who was not at his best after joining AS Monaco last term.
Falcao scored his first goal since his season-long loan move from the Ligue 1 club on transfer deadline day and the strike sealed a 2-1 victory for his side at Old Trafford against Everton.
Meanwhile, Rooney has been handed the captain's armband by Van Gaal, but not the responsibility of leading the line. England's skipper has been played in a more withdrawn role so far this season when Falcao and Van Persie have been preferred in the striker positions.
While Herrera's claims have some credibility to them, he is certain to get some vociferous disagreement from football fans the world over. Most notably those of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Cristiano Ronaldo's partnership with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema fired los Blancos to the Champuions League title last season and has looked as dangerous so far this term. They have sold Angel di Maria to Manchester United, but the additions of James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos will mean the 'BBC' getting plenty of ammunition.
Then there is the small matter of the front line at Madrid's fiercest rivals, Barcelona. Lionel Messi and Neymar are the two standout stars in the Camp Nou attack, but the debut of Luis Suarez is this month and will surely only make them even more potent.
