I know the results lately let you guys feel down but I don’t think you need to be pessimistic to make a top 4. Madison is available and your team finds the way to play Iheanacho. These two players are the most important to your team for the overall performance and they play. Some might underestimate how important Madison is to the defensive part of your game and think his contribution is solely on offensive part.I will maybe cede the point on Evans. He does seem to have got shakier as this season has gone on. Would still take Fofana over Maguire (Maguire does have more experience at the moment, but he's just so slow!). And - unless I'm reading this wrong - you say "even Soyuncu", as if he isn't the best out of the 3 defenders. IMO Soyuncu is the best out of all 5.
There's a lot of recency bias in here - we've been letting them in left, right and center at the moment, but we've still only conceded 3 more goals than you this season. And that's with all the injuries and unsettled back lines. We're playing with Amartey in a back 3 at the moment (Soyuncu has covid). I still honestly believe that, could our defence stay injury free and get a run of games together (we've played so many different formations and combinations to accommodate injuries, which doesn't help), it's the stronger of the two, albeit not by much.
It's your attack which really blows us out of the water. Vardy is finished, Barnes is good, but not Rashford, Perez is useless, Maddison can pull off a worldy but is inconsistent. We're only hanging on by a thread thanks to our Lord and Saviour, Iheanacho. We don't have anyone of Bruno's or Pogba's quality.
I don't think we'll get top 4. Think we're looking at a last-season-like melt down. Something seems quite mentally fragile with this team, but I don't know if that's the players or Rodgers, or both.
Edit: Another point I should probably make. Ricardo still hasn't really looked the same yet, since coming back from his ACL injury. Pre-injury, I'd definitely put him above AWB, but now I'm not so sure.
