Not feeling confident about our defence. Wouldn’t be averse to us going with 3 at the back in some tough away games.
Not in the 3-4-3 shape we copied Chelsea with last time though. More like a 5-2-1-2/3-5-2 set up.
It might not be our “best possible starting XI” but in terms of soaking up pressure and being able to build our way up the pitch and counter I don’t think we could cope any other way.
Obviously in the home games against teams we control the majority of the game in we could go with a more free flowing 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 approach.
But right now as we’re second best in most away games I’d prioritise shape and playing out from the back.
