    Gundogan says in the video, "We always want to play in this position with a 3 and then a 2 at the back".

    So yeah, we always play with a 3 at the back. Like the man said, and like you can see by watching any of our games.

    Yes it's 5 attacking and 5 defending. This video shows how.



    So you could deploy Cancelo to do the same thing as Zinch does but on the right, providing you have cover behind.

    With Cancelo you can do a few things. I think the most common would be KDB dropping deeper and Bernardo coming inside to free up space on the right for Cancelo, so the 3 would be Zinchenko-Laporte-Stones with a 2 of Fernandinho KDB ahead of them. Fern could also drop back and Zinch could go next to KDB.

    The really interesting thing would be what we do if Mendy and Cancelo played together as very attacking fullbacks.

    I see. So when he said 'back' he really meant 'front'. Certainly couldn't be that you misinterpreted his statement.

    As that statement to me sounds like:

    We like to play in this position with a 3:
    .Zinchencko....... Gundogan........Walker

    then a 2 at the back:
    .......... Laporte.......... Kompany

    Is it possible he misspoke? Sure. Is it more likely that you misunderstood? Well, I'll let you be the judge of that.

    No dax, it's not possible because hes got a ficking big screen in front of him and he drags the players around so its 3 at the back with 2 in front.
