The midfield problem is only going to get worse in the short term, KDB is knocking on a bit and becoming more susceptible to injury, Bernado will (probably) finally depart at the end of this season, and Phil is just one man. Rodri has no cover to speak of and we're left with Doku, Nunes and Kova all with a long way to go to fill the boots of the above or Gundog/Mahrez. Phillips unfortunately looks lost when he plays, which is a pity because he's undoubtedly a good player, just not in our system
Then we have Jack.....promises so much and no doubt keeps the ball exceptionally well, which fits in with the pep plan, but he really should be providing more in the way of goals/assists/chance creation.
Of course the new boys may just need time to adjust, but for all 3 to work out will be some achievement
The one good thing is we have 6 very good defenders which should mean we have no reason to spend there for a couple of seasons, plus Rico coming through at a pace
