What happened was we lost Coleman to a hamstring injury mid way through the derby, we then lost Richarlison for 3 games due to suspension, James picked up a knock in the derby and struggled, eventually missing a few games, Allan did his hamstring, Richy came back and did damage to his ankle. Godfrey was having to be used as a right back. Then we lost Digne to an ankle injury in training which kept him out for a month and a half. Which meant no proper full backs Holgate, Iwobi and Godfrey playing there. Allan came back and after 3 games got injured and missed 3 months. Coleman came back and gets injured again. James in and out again with calf injury. Coleman comes back and picks up injury against City, centre half back to fullback. James again in and out with injuries missing the last 5 games now.
That’s pretty much what put an end to the tantalising football we had earlier on in the season. If that covers it
