I'd like to see how well City and Utd would cope with 2 of there main CB's out and the 3rd one constantly picking up niggling injuries. Oh and on top of that all their forwards out of form at the same time!!
We'll get out of our slump, still in touch, then lets see if they can maintain their current form, we are still only half way through the season and we have players to come back in, they don't, they are playing at their maximum right now and scraping wins.
City have got stones, garcia and ake to back up laporte and dias.
They have torres, Jesus, Mahrez, Foden and Bernardo to back up for aguero sterling and Kdb.
We only have 2 players capable of scoring a goal it seems plus 1 on the injured list. And we have 2 cb's on the bench who we won't play. Origi is a complete passenger last season and this season. Minamino doesn't get a look in.
So, city could lose 2 or 3 cbs and a whole front 3 really (aguero out most of the season anyway) and they would be fine. 4 or 5 out of form? One of the others will produce.
Now, we can question just how they have accumulated all that talent, not within the rules in my view. But thats the depth. Jürgen has his core 14 or 15 and we need them on it all season ... like they were last season to compete. A couple drop off and bam.
