Danny or Ched?

Danny or Ched?

Due to Manchester City`s lack of strikers, they have become dependant on two very good young British strikers. However because Mark Hughes still employs Sven`s tactics, and plays a lone striker, only one of them can get the place.

Daniel Sturridge: Technically this boy is superb, his finishing, first touch and pace has caught the eye of many clubs including fellow money bags, Chelsea. He is a proven goal-scorer at Youth, Reserve, Under 17`s and Under 19 level, but can the skilful forward cope in the Premiership just yet?

Ched Evans: This Welsh international will never stop running. He`s a proven goal-scorer again at Youth and reserve level, and has even bagged a couple goals for the Wales national team. His technical ability is not quite up to the standard of Sturridge, but he commits more to the cause. Can his determination and will to improve, make him a top class premiership striker?

In my own Opinion, Daniel Sturridge wins this competition hands down. With a run in the first team, he will become a world class player. He showed this against Stoke on Sunday, when his assets, where crucial in Robinho`s hat trick. Although Ched Evans showed maturity in setting up Robinho`s first, I just sense that Sturridge has the potential to be very big indeed. Either way both Evans and Sturridge have a very big future and Ched may in time prove me wrong, but I believe that Sturridge should be the first choice backup behind Jo, well at least until Benjani and Vassell comes back.

If you were Mark Hughes, who would you pick to lead your frontline?

It's a no brainer - Sturridge...and I still think that Ched usually gets the nod because it's a Welsh thing.

Sturridge... Ched is just as good! But over Ched, Sturridge has had experince longer and talents in his genes...

Stuzzer for me, but I think Ched is also going to be a superstar. I think there is something of the Shearer about that lad.

Come on Hughesy, give Daniel a start. He showed with those two excellent assists against Stoke that he can do it for us. And that there is an emerging understanding with Robinho... That could be brilliant for the lad.

They certainly looked to have "clicked" together!

Sturridge is more naturally gifted, but Evans has an outstanding work ethic. Both will prove equally effective over the course of the season in different circumstances. Sturridge should be let loose on Boro tonight though!

I think it too soon to decide which one would get my vote at this time, neither of them have had a decent run and both have had very little time in the first team to really show us what they are made of. Sturridge for me showed that he is learning and took the better options against Stoke, but I hope he does not get into that habit of being frightened of having a go. Evans asked to play a different role to that of Sturridge, Evans is pushed more up front in the Jo role and it is a difficult role to play. Its a wait and see for me.
