Terrible post, coming 3rd without a competent striker and only one midfielder who can score is actually impressive. Jorginho and Kovacic are both class players. I accept Jorginho didn't adapt immediately, though his struggles were exacerbated buy a lack of technical players, thanks to Jose and Conte. Kovacic is a supremely talented player, people criticize him for not scoring goals, but that is not his job. People focus on his lack of goal scoring because our strikers and AM's don't score goals, it is unfair to attack Kovacic for the faults of others.
The two mangers who ended up above Sarri have had multiple years to build their teams. Were Pep and Klopp much more impressive in their first seasons?
