So the start of the season isn’t far off and this is potentially how the season could line up.

1 game in the community Shield
38 games in the premier league
1 game in the super cup
2 games in the Club World Cup

Potentially 6 games in the League Cup
Potentially 7 games in the FA Cup
Potentially 13 games in the UCL

So this season we could play (a minimum) 50 games (if we go out at the first possible hurdle of every competition) or (a maximum) of 68 games if we get to the final of every competition.

Our squad... with less than 2 weeks of the transfer window to go is this (from official site)

GK

Alisson
Mignolet*
Kelleher

Def

Clyne* (injured)
VVD
Robertson
Lovren
Gomez
Matip
TAA
Phillips*
VDB
Hoever (not in first team squad from website but could get a look in)


Mid

Hendo
Fabinho
Shaq
Milner
Gini
Lallana
Keita
Ox
Kent*
Jones*
Ejaria*
Woodburn*
Wilson*
Chirevella*
Laourci (not in first team but could get a look in)

Attackers

Salah
Firmino
Mane
Brewster
Origi
Awonyi*
Duncan (not in first team but could get a look
In)

My question is this... with seemingly no major incomings does our squad offer enough if we were to sell / loan out the above players with a * or do we need to consider keeping the likes of Wilson / Kent / Woodburn in order to compete for honours in a season that will be between 50 and 68 games.

Mid

Hendo
Fabinho

This is being discussed in more than enough threads.
