There’s an alarming drop in creativity without Merlin and KDB. So far, Gundogan and Bernardo (specially the latter) have failed to sparkle. However, I’m in agreement with many other posters that they should grow into their roles with a little time and patience. I wouldn’t argue with some additional cover elsewhere, e.g. centre back and Sanchez, although I wouldn’t be that arsed either. It seems a little like stock-piling. By and large, we have a great squad, even if not everybody’s on fire at the same time.
