However, as I pointed yesterday, they defend so deep rather than pressing more. They go back to support defenders very fast and it gives lots of areas to our opponents. Unfortunate, that's one of the biggest drawbacks of 4-4-2. Also, smalling goes into the box very fast which I think it's natural because of his normal post. In second half, after Park and Giggs subs, we actually played 4-3-2-1, which had more pressing and Arsenal players had less ball in that period. I think this system would be useful against top teams for away matches and when we want to keep the result. However, I hope to see more pressing and aggression from Cleverly and Anderson. Below graphics show my points better.
Look at the Red area which gave few good chances to gunners
Look at the dense in midfield, Rooney and Young pressed more in that tactic and won more balls. Also defense line was not that back.
Btw, I'm not saying we should switch system, I'm just comparing different systems.
