Coaching Points

encourage players to keep shape of back 4 (#2,3,4,5)

two holding midfielders (#6,8) to create space, then check in to receive the ball - timing of runs to receive the ball is very important

If HM check in and do not receive the ball, they continue run but pull out to create space for next HM to check into

#2 and #3 to create width and depth when CD have the ball and time/space. If #4 or #5 under pressure then FB react with positioning and come short to provide an option

Defenders always thinking safety and not turning the ball over
