The least used forwards by top teams this 2018 football season

  1. Fernando Llorente (Tottenham Hotspur):

Llorente was a highly valued forward in the La Liga when he played with Athletic Bilbao. He joined Spurs this season from Swansea after being impressive with the Swans. Unfortunately for him, Harry Kane has been once again unstoppable and even when Kane has been injured, Son is normally preferred to take his place. He surely deserves to get more game time but it is difficult to achieve that at Spurs right now.

  1. Sandro Wagner (Bayern Munich):

Wagner joined Bayern Munich in January this season from German club TSG Hoffenheim. It is surprising that the German forward has managed to get only 392 minutes under his belt after his switch in the winter window. With the presence of Robert Lewandowski, it was expected that Wagner would struggle to get more game time. He has scored for Bayern every 78 minutes and since Bayern have wrapped up the Bundesliga, Wagner shall get more time with the Bavarians on the pitch.

  1. Paco Alcacer (Barcelona):

Alcacer made his mark whilst playing for Valencia but then moved to Barcelona in the summer of 2016. It was dicey when he joined that he would get regular game time and it has only got worse for him with the arrival of Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho. With no surprise, it is understandable why the 24 year old has managed to make only 13 starts for the Catalan club so far and it is best that he moves away from the club and plays somewhere where he can play regularly.

  1. Olivier Giroud (Chelsea):

The Frenchman was impressive at Arsenal but somehow didn’t manage to get as much time on the pitch as expected. It only got more difficult with the arrival of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as the Gabonese has been a regular starter for the Gunners. The January transfer window saw Giroud join Chelsea as Alvaro Morata has his problems in front of the goal. But in spite of that fact, Giroud hasn’t been able to get more starts but there’s a possibility of happening sooner than later.

  1. Marcus Rashford (Manchester United):

The Englishman has been very impressive for the Red Devils from a young age. He is arguably one of the best young talents England have at the moment. Having said that, it hasn’t been easy for Rashford to start regularly for United. With the presence of players like Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez, Rashford has struggled to get regular game time. It is understandable that Mourinho would consistently want the best from all his players but Rashford does deserve a chance to play centrally more often.
