Richarlison must be the man to lead the line

In a poll on our Everton forums this weekend, Richarlison came out top as Evertonian's preferred choice of striker.  But do you agree?

I'm really not feeling the Richarlison up top thing. It doesn't play to his strengths

His strengths are his finishing and his ability to hold the ball up, beat a man, and create space. I'd say it plays to all. Of those. Then he's pretty quick so balls into the channels would work perfectly too.

Finishing

Finishing and pace yes. Not seeing holding the ball up as a big strength. I just think he's a much better winger than striker. Not saying he'll be terrible there but I think it's wasting his ability

he's best used in the position he's in now. running at players towards goal. walcott up top for me. his movement with richarlison creating from the wings with sig and bernard/lookman behind him also is surely worth a shout. i think it's about time dcl, tosun niasse were forgotten about as starters.

Unlike our other front men, he can trap a ball, beat a man and shoot (on target). He has a pretty decent first touch too and can do keepie-uppies

Playing as a number 9 is completely different to playing out wide. Not saying he can't do it... but just because he looks top quality playing out wide doesn't mean that'll transfer automatically.

You might actually find he gets a lot less chances starting as the main striker, because his starting position is different - ie right up against the back 4 marked by a central defender as opposed to cutting in from the left.

Has he ever played there?

Apparently he has.

I think he may end up there eventually but I'd keep him on the left for now.

Get Tosun back in the side and go with that front three that actually looked really good until the suspension.

In his full debut for Brazil he played there - even wearing number nine. Scored twice and was brought Down for the pen that made it 1-0

I read that as "his strengths are his fishing..." and thought I was in the Hibbert thread by mistake
