    Let's assume the worst ... because it looks like it ...

    You forgot the option of ‘The league will be binned because Randall Flagg is taking over’...

    I don't have any poll on tapatalk.

    We'll still win the league, but it's gonna be tighter than last season.

    I think I might end up on another forum's 'meltdown' section if I don't relax myself.

    You saw the injury mate - there's no way that's not a long layoff*

    Top. The rest of the league is garbage. We may go for a tactical change of just blow teams away.

    Yeah, it's a significant injury.

    So, we're left with two injury prone centre backs potentially for the majority of the season.

    We're not winning the league this year. Thing is, I don't know who is.

    VVD was the main turning point for our defence so we will be up against if.

    Shame we couldn't do that tactical change before we shipped 13 goals in 5 games

    Why should we just give up regardless of the extent of his injury?
    Go for gold, and see where we end up.
    13/14 style.

    Sorry to say this guys, but Gomez and Matip aren't bad defenders, Alisson will come back, and they'll play well with him. Sure they'll get injured as the season goes on, but we'll adapt and change when they do, I personally don't find Fabinho in defence that upsetting.

    We can manage it as the league will be stoped for at least a month due to Covid

    If we play the CB pairing of Matip and Fabinho with a midfield of Thiago (as long as there's no long term injury), Hendo and wijnqldum....then our front 3 will do the rest and we win the league.

    But.....and this is a massive BUT.....we've been lucky with injuries over the last couple of seasons and VVD and Allison might be just the start. An injury to mané or Salah and we're struggling for top 4.

    Matip is a good defender who struggles for fitness, Gomez is a bad defender who relies on pace to recover his frequent misjudgments. They will both be injured again by Christmas
