Hassenhüttl seems to be good at making his teams a pain in the ass to play against. This is a good article with some bits about his defensive approach at Leipzig (defending deeper, not pressuring the ball until it reaches the midfield):https://www.sbnation.com/soccer/2016/12/15/13924976/rb-leipzig-bundesliga-title-naby-keita
I'd like to see more of that from us, frankly.
I know the idea of a high press is really popular right now because so many top sides play that way but it's a lot of work to implement it (in terms of coaching and getting the right players) and if you're not good at it (e.g. us), it can leave you badly exposed at the back.
A mid-block might not sound as sexy but it's probably the more realistic and more effective option for this group of players. All it does is trade high-risk, high-reward pressing opportunities further up the pitch (which for us are high-risk, no-reward because we never win the ball back in or near the opponent's third) for more defensive solidity and a deeper starting position for any potential counterattacks (which, who cares? Imagine what would happen if we got the likes of Bernard, Richarlison, Lookman, and Walcott on the ball with space ahead of them more often. Goals, plenty of them.)
