It’s a looong road ahead, but I think we’ve coped really well without VVD and Gomez so far.
In terms of balance to squad - not being able to "missed" or having adequate cover..........no VVD=

Overplaying Gomez - injured
Overplaying Matip - Injured
Overplaying Fab (moved to CB) - Injured
Overplaying Midfielders to compensate for Fab - Naby, Hendo, Milner all injured

Of course Thiago missing also doesn't help but most stems from VVD not being available
