If we end up missing out on Partey or Aouar, we'll finish 7th/8th again. We are stronger in the big games for sure but it hasn't changed that we're suffering against 'smaller' sides. Our midfield can't create nor dominate in these games as we have seen against a relegation candidate a few days ago and as we saw it the whole of last season. Still don't know if Partey would add more to our game or Aouar tbh. One of them probably gets us a fight for 4th place, both would transform us into a top 3 side imo.
