Not really sure of the point trying to be made as all teams will miss key players and as shown by the losses to West Brom, Hull and Forest we only had 1 of the 6 players out. How many matches have there been where all 6 played and how did those results go?
The fact we are top despite seemingly non stop injuries shows Bielsa has been able to adapt. We have only failed to score in 2 matches this season which shows we have scored goals when Hernandez hasn't played. Likewise we have scored when Roofe hasn't played (don't forget Tyler Roberts scoring the winner v Hull). Similarly we conceded 4 v WBA with Cooper and PJ playing and KP in front of them.

My point is we lost points in some of those games due to key players out injured particularly when Hernandez & Roofe missed eight games. Still feel we'd have gained two extra points at Swansea had Pontus or Cooper played, McBurnnie wouldn't have got so much space as he did when marked by Ayling & Berardi.

We would be clear by now had it not been for our injury curse !
