If we could have signed VVD, kept Sturridge fit and had a decent run of injuries, then I think we could have mounted a decent challenge.
However, not getting VVD (& Keita) and Sturridge still looking crocked and now Lallana out and I do still think we’ll start reasonably well, but we will tail off mid-season, unless we can strengthen in Jan.
I’m assuming Coutinho stays until at least next summer, but if we do manage to have a great couple of cup runs, challenge for the title, then who knows whether he’ll jump ship next year. But if he has a great season and Barca are prepared to pay £120m now, then at the very least we should expect £150m next summer.
