It's 3 players.

I guarantee we won't be the only team who has lost 3 starters at any point of the season.

But its the entire spine of the team - if those 3 players were Coleman, Townsend & Godfrey you can make do and put Keane, Holgate & Gordon in there and still have DCL, Richarlison up top, Gray wide and Doucoure/Allan in the middle - we've consistently lost our most irreplaceable players.

Our 15-20 goal a season forward, our only decent CM who actually has legs, our best CB and have lost the likes of Richarlison, Pickford and now Gray with no like for like options.

For our aspirations of europe - the teams around those spots can still replace like for like.

Utd: Ronaldo, Cavani, Greenwood, Rashford, Sancho, Martial, Lingard

City: Foden, Jesus, Grealish, Mahrez, Sterling

RS: Salah, Mane, Jota, Firmino, Origi

Leicester: Vardy, Daka, Barnes, Inchacho

West Ham: Antonio, Bowen (both stayed fit all season)

Spurs: Kane, Son, Moura (all stayed fit)

Wolves: Jimenez, Hwang, Podence, Neto

We've had Rondon and Dobbin for nearly half of the season and the other half we've only really had Richarlison who isn't an out and out forward in this system.

People need a reality check - we are a bang average squad with a good starting 11 when everyone is fit.

We get your point. We're the first team to ever have 3 players out at the same time. It's never happened before in football and so it is impossible for us to win a footy match. Repeat ad nauseum.

But you said Rondon was good and believed he was a worthy signing. So he should be slotting for us.

Rondon was a free transfer that hasn't so far worked out but our situation was dire in the summer

Not like we pissed £70 million on him like Utd had the luxury of doing with Sancho was it?
