Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho are goal machines when used in the correct system. You get Andy Carroll back from injury during later October, early November but you’ll find you won’t want to use him if both Valencia and Sakho are scoring the goals. In that case, Carroll is without a doubt going to get annoyed and will push for a move in January.
Should you decide to cash in then you’re still going to need to a decent and affordable back up and, regrettably, Carlton Cole is not that man.
Step forward Federico Bonazzoli. The 17-year-old can be got for around £1million at the start of the game and will provide decent back up to the strikers. He’s mostly one for the future though, so you could always bring him in and loan him back out if you do have plans for Carroll.
