    Sane also expressed a preference for the right when he joined. I think wingers always say they like to play inverted because they get the odd spectacular goal. I’m glad Pep doesn’t stick with it because we play packed defences, and we have to get round them and pull it back.

    I’m still haunted by that time we tried SWP on the left and Petrov on the right for a couple of games. Bloody hell.

    I said this at weekend, I think pep doesn’t want Bernardo and Zinchenko on the same side as neither are particularly quick.

    On the left he plays Sterling for his speed

    On the right walker is obviously quick so allows a slower winger to play without too many issues.

    This is obviously just what I think is happening

    I’m no expert

    Petrov on the right led to *that* superman volley.

    Good shout. And David White used to cut in from the left and fire into the near post sometimes.

    But I think it's best used as a tactic part way through a game if things are getting predictable or to test a weak full back. Prefer right on right and left on left most of the time.

    It must be this, Bernardo seems utterly wasted there on the right and Sterling isn’t quite the same on the left.

    Pep doesn’t even swap them for a bit during the game like he does with Sane and Sterling.

    It must be the fact Zinchenko and Bernardo would be too slow together.
