PRESSING FROM THE  FRONT 4-1-4-1 TO 4-1-3-2

Continuing on from “4-3-3 attack switches to 4-1-4-1 defence


Pressing begins when A goes off the line of the 4 midfielders. The teams shape changes from their   defensive 4-1-4-1 to a more pressing 4-1-3-2.Both A and B cut out the passing options and try and force the blue defender to play the ball to the side where his winger directly faces his opponent.If the yellow defender wins the ball then it is a 5 on 5 situation  against a defence that is not prepared for it.
