I don't expect it to be anything but bad. My thoughts move to how do we deal with this significant hole in the squad in the short term and longer term. Any ideas?
Short term I think the only answer is Gini, played ahead of Milner and Henderson in a midfield three (at least for our two remaining Champions League matches. The only other thing that comes to mind is playing Bobby as an attacking mid in a 4-4-2, but I doubt Jürgen would make that kind of tactical change this late in the season.
Long term we obviously need improved depth at midfield and forward. Not sure if that is primarily though loan recalls and promoted youth, or transfers in (although we definitely need at least one new midfielder in next year along with Keita, especially if Can is leaving).
I do hope Alex can get back to being a major part of our team. Seems like a top guy as well.
