We just need to get past Norwich. Three points from that is all that matters. We should probably write Utd off and focus on using the time between Norwich and West Ham to get everyone fit. If we can do that and have, say, 13 points from the first seven games, we’re in good shape.
But Norwich is crucial.
Considering the lack of spend (on a squad we already knew was subpar under Ancelotti), plus the issues with James and Sigurdsson, and now the injuries…Benitez is doing just fine.
