You said yourself in an earlier post that we need a left forward adding as there is only Mane there. That is how teams mitigate for these things, by having other options. We do too. We have ok depth in goal, great (if susceptible to injury) depth at CB, promising depth at RB, brilliant depth at CM, play a system that doesn't utilise AM/number 10 types but have a few half options for tactical flexibility and good depth at both right forward/CF. Next to no depth at LB and LW, mostly players from other positions needing to "do a job" or academy players who haven't played a competitive senior game yet.Teams don't operate under the assumption that a player is going to break their leg. Yes, injuries happen, but as stated above even if Origi were to get injured as your example, that's still only 1491 mins left for Brewster/Ox/Keita/Shaqiri/Wilson to take on. Not a problem at all.
