Agree for the most part @Alpha, I commented at the tine that they were all over us first half, but I see your point of staying contained and letting them huff and puff as we were 1-0 up.
All I will say is though, is they found themselves time and time again in crossing situations down the sides of our area, and we just couldn’t stop this from happening. If they had better delivery we’d have been punished. We afforded them far too much space as we tried to stay contained and stop late runners. Their “false 5” style was really effective and entertaining to see.
The good news is, getting the ball out wide and crossing it seems to be the only thing they can do. Second half we figured them out and reduced them to only a couple of similar opportunities, while keeping our own style and dominating until the end. Think Keogh and Tomori and Huddz’ positioning and responsiveness were integral to how we nullified them. Our CBs were often out wide anticipating or helping his full back deal with being overloaded, while Huddz tucked in and filled the gap left behind. Was a great tactical game to witness.
