We started the game with a clear 4-4-2 formation with Dalot on the right and Pogba on the left. I was keen to see how it plays out when the line ups were released, but I must say it underwhelmed pretty quickly. We ended up changing not too long after we conceded. The 2 men in the middle got out numbered by Arsenal's 3 which lead to the gaps in the middle that were exploited for the goal. Pogba was also quite ineffective as LM, too far from the action and quite quickly closed down and doubled up on by Maitland-Niles and Xhaka. Is 4-4-2 dead as a system while everyone else plays 3 in the middle? If so, how do Atletico Madrid make it work... or Monaco when they made the CL final? Was it simply a case of wrong personnel for the job, or players being unfamiliar with a system we've hardly ever deployed before? Should we play that again in the future and if you so, how would you like to see us line up?
