When we need a very attacking look, I'd like to see:

AM: Bernard
LW: Richarlison
CF: Calvert-Lewin
RW: Lookman

That would be dangerous to start matches (unless we're certain we're going to have a lot of the ball with just two players back there) but in situations where we're desperate for a goal, I bet that front four would pull teams apart.

We only ever have two covering in the middle anyway.

True, but that's causing loads of problems at the moment.

I'd rather Silva try to put another body in there to win us some control of matches before trying the all-out attack approach with a different front four.

Given space to work, any permutation of Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman, Bernard, and Walcott should score enough to earn us the points we want.
