What a difference a year makes! Twelve months ago Goodison was preparing to say its final farewell to Duncan Ferguson, Marcus Bent had already departed and Everton's striking options seemed limited.
But the arrival of club-record signing Andy Johnson in the summer coupled with the emergence of youngsters James Vaughan and Victor Anichebe has added impressively to a Toffee strikeforce that already boasted the likes of James Beattie and James McFadden.
Johnson is the leading scorer of the group, with a return of 12 goals this term so far. Vaughan has returned three goals from four starts, Anichebe four from six starts - and a bevy of appearances from the bench.
McFadden has netted twice from eight starts and Beattie two from 14 starts.
In total, the Everton strikers have netted 23 times. That compares favourably with last year's return of 20.
But which combination do you believe could be the most potent? Everton started the season with Johnson and Beattie leading the line against Watford.
We have seen Vaughan start each of the last four games alongside Johnson and prove impressive, as has Anichebe when he has figured.
Injury has dogged McFadden's campaign but he has shown promise when he has played.
Anichebe and Vaughan established a strong understanding at reserve level, whilst Johnson has shown he can lead the line alone.
But whick strikeforce can lead Everton to Europe? And who will be the leading scorers next term?
