sport news Gareth Bale is back in the Premier League with Spurs but which of the 'Big Six' ...

Tottenham announced the return of Gareth Bale to north London last week with Spurs fans excited to see the Welsh winger back on the pitch as a Spurs player. 

The 31-year-old leaves after seven successful years at the Santiago Bernabeu to boost Jose Mourinho side's chances of finishing in the top-four this season.

Bale is likely to line-up in a front three at Spurs alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, who starred as the north Londoners won 5-2 at St Mary's on Sunday to kick-start their league campaign.

Sportsmail takes a look at how the potential trio of Bale-Kane-Son compares to the other 'Big Six' and whether Spurs have the most exciting front three out of the 'Big Six'... 

ARSENAL

Attackers: , Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, Willian

2019/20 Goals: 60* (*Willian was at Chelsea)

Firepower rating: 7/10

On paper, Arsenal's success going forward is reliant on club captain , who has led the goalscoring charts in each of his two seasons in north London. 

The Gabon forward, who has transitioned to a left-sided player in north London, has 72 goals in 122 appearances for the Gunners and is widely expected to add to his tally as Mikel Arteta's side continue their upward trajectory. 

Though Alexandre Lacazette has shown that he can offer goalscoring opportunities of his own, having netted two goals in two Premier League games at the start of this season. 

£72million-signing Nicolas Pepe needs to improve on last season's total of eight goals and ten assists in all competitions while ex-Chelsea man Willian looks a smart piece of business on a free transfer and registered two assists on his debut against Fulham.

CHELSEA

Attackers: Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech

2019/20 Goals: 72* (Havertz, Werner and Ziyech were playing away from Chelsea)

Firepower rating: 8/10

It's an all-new attack for Chelsea this season as Germany internationals Kai Havertz and Timo Werner have moved to Stamford Bridge after lighting up the Bundesliga last term, while Hakim Ziyech will bring a new dimension off the right wing after his move from Ajax. 

But it's been a slow start to the new-look trio in west London as Ziyech picked up an injury in his pre-season debut for the Blues, while Werner and Havertz have been left empty-handed from their first two Premier League games. 

Havertz's hat-trick in the 6-0 Carabao Cup win over Barnsley on Wednesday night showed more than a glimpse of what he is capable of, however.  

Frank Lampard also has Christian Pulisic to welcome back from injury. The American winger scored 11 goals last season in all competitions, including the opener in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal, but picked up a hamstring injury at Wembley to ruin his pre-season development. 

Once Ziyech and Pulisic return from injury and the German duo settle in properly to life at Chelsea, then Lampard will have some devastating options in attack - and we haven't even discussed the likes of Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud yet.

LIVERPOOL 

Attackers: Robert Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah

2019/20 Goals: 57

It's arguably the most recognisable front three in the Premier League at the moment and despite playing with each other for over three years, no-one really knows how to stop Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. 

Both Salah and Mane have netted twice already this season in the opening two Premier League games, while Firmino showed his
