Injuries mostly. Completely decimated the defense. Van Dijk, arguably the best defender in the world, is lost early for the season. then our other staring central defender Gomez gets injured for the season. Then our third string, Matip, gets injured for the season. Fabinho, a central midfielder has to play in defense and he's always injured.
Now their team captain Henderson, arguably our best midfielder, has to play in defense which ruins the midfield. It's just a mess and the season is a wash. They'll be back healthy next year and ready to go again.
I really haven't had much time to pay attention after switching careers but I just noticed 4 straight losses. Still in it in UCL though. Might as well just aim for top 4 and/or win that.
