|Comments & Conclusions:|
- Defence: The ratio of defenders to attackers is 6:2 but this does not prevent the goal being scored. Yorke is allowed far too much space in a dangerous area and Giggs should not be allow the freedom to run from midfield - Tighter marking in front of goal and midfielders must track back to cover attacking players running through midfield areas.
- Attack: Penetrating attacking run from midfield causes havoc and the perfectly timed one-two creates space and an opportunity to score. Ability to run at defenders and into space and play a one-two to overcome a defence outnumbering the attack.
