I agree. Midfield is the only area City is better. Our absolute point total is not the goal, being ahead of them this time whatever they end up with is. We are deep and solid in MF but not spectacular, and not really sold on any of them being auto team sheet selections for the next 3-4 years other than probably Fab. That is our best chance to improve our top 11--of course it would take a special player.The club's midfield options all have a range of varying quality but not many stand out players. There's also a lack of consistency in play. While we have a few different players it's the weakest part when looking at the first eleven. Further the midfielders listed weren't all attacking ones.
The club would be more hard pressed to improve in any other position. Alisson, Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Mane, Salah, Firmino pretty much all pick themselves.
There's a few areas to improve in the squad, such as another forward, a bit more in defence but midfield remains right up there. The transfer window is an opportunity to improve the team. It should be taken.
