Shaqiri is playing more and more matches as we play 4-2-3-1.This is exactly it. Why RedForever, who’s seen players come in and have to spend months learning the system, expects players to come in and contribute to the title challenge I don’t know.
Besides, if we short because Keita hasn’t settled, wouldn’t it be better to let him settle than get another body in?
So if one of our front 4 gets injured?
I would rather Werner comes to replace one of the injured players, rather than Origi or Sturridge coming on or Keita playing LW out of his natural position.
Even if we revert back to a 4-3-3, the rest of our front players cannot play every game.
This summer, Sturridge and Origi will move on, harry Wilson may come into the first team and Brewster will also be promoted. AOC will hopefully also have recovered and come back stronger.
But imo we still need an attacking option this January, especially considering our low depth this season and manes relatively poor form.
Besides if we bring Werner in, it should help Keita get settled too due to their past relationship.
