Set Up

Shape of midfield changes to now give less options to the blue midfielder and give us more width.

once players have won the ball they are alowed to cross the line to shoot, if needed.

Key Points

- Working on when to press and when to cover player in midfield and stop him from turning

- As players are allowed to cross when shooting, will they use it and risk losing the shape of the midfield if shot is blocked or keeper saves it.
