Jermaine Jenas believes we have a striking quartet that is up there with the best in the Premier League.Darren Bent, Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov and Jermain Defoe have all been among the goals over this pre-season period, netting 13 of our 15 over the six games so far in various partnerships.

"They are all scoring goals at the minute and combining well with each other, which is great for us," said JJ.

"In the four of them we've got the complete striker. One that wants to run in behind, one that likes to come short, a clever one and an ultimate finisher - it is great to have those four in our squad," he added before assessing whether our front men are up with the best.

"I'd say we are definitely in the top three at least - there must be a lot of teams who would like to have our strikeforce. We're more than happy with it.

"I'm sure the manager will have a few decisions to make but that is the beauty of having a talented squad. I'm sure he would rather have that problem than not.

"We are adaptable and sometimes we will need three of them on the pitch and sometimes we will need to change things in games. There are alternatives."
