Yeah it’s a big blow IMO especially with the tough run of games coming. Looks like it’ll have to be Matic and Herrera as a two in the midfield. Although I don’t think the Liverpool centre midfield is up to much but that forward line could rip anyone apart on their day.
Fellaini has his doubters but I think we’ll really feel his absence.
If Herrera steps up and can get his season going I don't think he will be missed but Carrick will probably need to step in vs Benfica and Swansea to provide some rotation for Herrera & Matic to keep them fresh.
