Coaching points:

- If ball is played to CF then as nearest CB apply pressurize, the remaining back three to play nice and compact

- The midfield screen should aim to recycle play if CFs have a poor touch when receiving the pass from deeper players

- Back four should immediately react and drop when the ball is being played over the top

- GKs should work as sweeper when the team is playing high up on the pitch

- As unit first objective is to force play in wide areas and second is stop CFs receiving ground passes to feet
