This must be sort of how Liverpool fans have been feeling for a while: we could be so strong in attack with Auba, Laca, Mkhi, Özil & Jack, but we just don't have the necessary defensive balance. It's all about the DM imo. We need one or two better defenders & a GK for sure, but a really good mobile DM would allow those 5 offensive players to play much better. Fabinho/Danilo Pereira/Ndidi/Zakaria could all potentially do that. But I really want to see AMN in that role between now and the summer. We'll only know how good he really is in midfield by playing him there. Xhaka has been given chances, Elneny has been given chances, now AMN needs some.
