While I haven't written Vieira and ESR off, one hasn't proven himself yet, and the other is injury prone. Ødegaard will need to be rotated from time to time as well. Havertz and Trossard will be our backup false nines, so that opens up minutes if Jesus is resting. I doubt Trossard ever gets played as a CM if we sign Kudus, anyway.We’ve already got Ødegaard (who’s an automatic starter), Havertz, ESR, Vieira and maybe even Trossard who are going to be going for them LCM/RCM positions. Don’t really think we can throw another name into the mix there, is of Kudus does come I reckon he’d primarily been seen as a wide player.
Given Saka plays most games as well it’s hard to see where he’d get a game.
We can't keep going the way we did last season with Saka. We have CL now, he won't be able to rest like he did in the EL. We have to utilise rotations and subs more effectively this season.
