West Brom boss Alan Pardew willing to play all three strikers together

West Brom boss Alan Pardew says he'd be willing to throw all his attacking talent in the same line-up.

Pardew hasn't ruled out the possibility of starting Daniel Sturridge alongside both Jay Rodriguez and Salomon Rondon.

When he was asked if they could all start together, Pardew said: “Could they? Yeah possibly.

“Depending on how we set that up because you need the balance of the team of course, but with the kind of central midfield players we have I think we could do that.

“You could put four strikers on the pitch doesn't mean you're going to score more goals because you need the balance.

“You need players who are going to create, players who are going to stretch the pitch. Otherwise you'd see (Sergio) Aguero and (Gabriel) Jesus playing together and you don't, there's a reason for that.

“When you look at the strikers we've got, it would be ill perceived if I didn't play with two strikers. You're going to see two strikers on the pitch from now until the end of the season."
