Asamoah starts at left back ahead of Dalbert’s propsed move to Fiorentina. Vecino starts alongside Brozovic and Sensi in the middle of the pitch, with Barella expected to make his debut against Caglari next week.
Keep track of the movement of the front three. Splitting the wider centre backs into the half spaces and forcing the covering central defender into making fast decisions is how teams have consistently attacked Conte’s back line. Lapadula and Farias are mobile and like to switch positions. Lapadula prefers to drift to the right and cut inside. Track how the front pair pin onto D’Ambrosio and Skriniar then cut towards the flanks. That will leave De Vrij on an island to pick up midfield runners.
