The Three Lions face Malta and Slovenia in World Cup qualifiers in a fortnight’s time – two matches you’d expect ‘Big Sam’s’ boys to maraud through with relative ease.
But Allardyce will be without at least one player from the squad that dramatically beat Slovakia in stoppage time at the start of September, with Spurs striker Harry Kane – who started in the 1-0 win – expected to be sidelined until November due to injury.
It’s more than likely one of the usual suspects will be given the chance to start up front – Raheem Sterling, Theo Walcott, Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge were all in Allardyce’s last selection and can all fill the void.
But which striker should take Kane’s slot in Allardyce’s next squad? Always keen to promote fan opinion whenever possible, we’ve given you six Premier League options to choose from – namely Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Sunderland veteran Jermain Defoe, Southampton’s weekend hero Charlie Austin, Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson, Burnley boy Andre Gray and Watford skipper Troy Deeney.
Let us know your thoughts below and we’ll post the results next week!
