One of the essential attributes of a striker in this league is to be fast, to be able to get stuck into the defence and rip your marker apart.
Last season Cherries striker Callum Wilson was one of the quickest strikers in the league, and he used his pace and control to great effect bagging a glut of goals which helped send Bournemouth up.
Watford have Ighalo and Deeney who also terrorised defences with their pace, bagging 20 goals apiece.
This is basic proof that a pacy striker is a big attribute to any Championship team looking to go up.
A pacy striker is able to beat his marker, get to crosses easier than a more immobile striker and make runs past defences – he can find the gaps in the defence as well as make runs in behind them like the key strikers did last season.
All the top teams this season possess a striker that can play up top with pace or a quick winger who can play up front, here is a list of the FIVE quickest strikers in the Championship, who are bound to bag a lot of goals this season.
