Present Premier League table-toppers Manchester City are becoming phenomenal in their attack gradually. They have the deepest squad as well as have the deepest resources in world football, and the team is certainly giving its level best, as is expected from them. However, in that regard, it should be mentioned that the Man City manager, Pep Guardiola has formed another perfect attacking machine.
Pep Guardiola new construction on Manchester City
Jack Grealish is added to the tune of 111 million euros in the summer has the club even further strength in the midfield. After 18 premier league matches this term, it seems like the Blues are looking forward to securing back to back titles.
The 4-3-3 formation lives on
The system of Manchester City works as the 4-3-3 formation. And the PL table-toppers always works with the same principle of retaining ball possession. However, this is a defensive play for Guardiola, as a team can’t concede chances if they have possession, but in turn, it administers the players for playing some stunning attacking football.
Man City’s strategy
Manchester City is very clear on their strategy which is that they choke out the life out of their opponents via retaining possession. Next, they minimize any threats that come their way by performing regular tactical fouls, when their opposition tries to counter-attack.
The city, efficiency in keeping the ball as well as pulling apart opposing defences means there is a spare player who is ready to receive the ball, and that man is generally picked out by a cross-field pass from Rodri.
Manchester City is very clear in their strategy which is certainly hard to compete. They are certainly playing defending champions and deserve to be the champions for consecutive times. They have their next match against Leicester City on Sunday, where they will be looking forward to using the same strategy and having favourable results.
