Got sent a clip from the Chelsea game, which surprised me.
Chelsea on the attack, we won the ball back in or just outside our box, 5 chelsea players in our box out of the game. Trent carries the ball forward, passes off to Thiago. 2 players make great forward runs in space with another already further forward. If Thiago plays the ball for either were in a 3 v 3 with space in front of us.
Thiago takes the ball out towsrds the sideline then turns back and kills the momentum, by the time he lays off a sideways pasd Chelsea are back in position.
It surprised me to see it
