Are you sure we don't have the players to work on this formation? It means pressing higher up the pitch to gain more control of midfield, but it doesn't need to have the backs bombing on all the way as wingers. Having four across the back is too static and slow going forward and if we press high we leave ourselves open to a ball over the top on a quick counter.
