A few comments on here about Traore being in our penalty area. I'm completely baffled as to why we don't leave him up near the halfway line - teams would have to leave at least two people back to cover him. Never ever been a fan of bringing every single player back to defend a corner

That would make sense because
1. He is a liability at the back
2. He is the fastest player for a break away

If only he could hold the ball up ! ;)

Yeah, but we've always done it since forever under Nuno. We even bring Podence back and he's 3'4''. Won't change now.

It’s been done to death before so I won’t bother explaining it again. But long story short, more people in box equals less chance of conceding. The opposition are probably leaving 2 back anyway.

It’s also easier to counter. Because unfortunately the launch over the top Sunday league style doesn’t actually work in professional football.

Case in point, Salah last season v United and even Jota for us against Bolton were both in the defensive third. Jota was in the area keeping an eye out for the quick corner. Neither required to be stood on the halfway line.
