The Premier League has already crossed its halfway mark and the season has warmed up well. At the top of the table, Liverpool has achieved a little comfort space, however, Manchester City are close at their heels.

Only 7 points separate the next four teams, as the competition to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot becomes severe.

In the bid to have a successful season, teams are relying on their attacking force to take them higher up in the table. In the 230 games played so far, 651 goals have been scored, at an average of 2.83 goals per game!

As such, today we take a look at the best 5 attacking trios of the Premier League this season. These players are among the top goal scorers of each of their clubs and have been the main source of goals for their teams this season.

Honourary Mention: With 22 goals among them, Chelsea's attacking trio of Eden Hazard, Pedro and Alvaro Morata miss out from this list.

The fact that Manchester United trio has pipped the Chelsea attack to be a part of this list shows how far United have come under Solskjaer. United have improved as a team, and are on a spectacular run of 7 wins in all competitions now.

The Red Devils have generally played with a front three of Martial, Rashford and Lingard under Solskjaer, while Lukaku has also been in the mix from the bench. Pogba has been orchestrating the attacking in a free role and this has helped United regain their goalscoring form.

All three of them have scored 8 goals each in the Premier League, and while Pogba and Rashford have done so in 20 appearances, Martial has reached those figures in 18 games.

It must also be mentioned that Romelu Lukaku is also on 8 goals in the Premier League, even though he has not been heavily involved in recent games. The fact that United already have 4 players on 8 goals now indicates that the Red Devils could get even better by the end of the season.

With 24 goals among them, the attacking trio of Pogba, Rashford and Martial is the 5th best in the league right now, but have all the ingredients to become the best by the end of the season.
