Also, I think it's we'll worked by Chelsea.
Something that they've probably worked on. When Sterling is on the wing, Chilwell tucks inside and trys to get in-between our players.
If we play 5 at the back, that's what I want our forwards and wing backs to do.
With 3 centerbacks itís natural that they push wider. You migh just as well ask why Doucoure did not track Chilwell or why Mina didnít move closer to Holgate (presuming both Tarkowski and Mykolenko could track whoever was in the box). If Holgate had not pushed out wide, Sterling would have been free to receive the pass
If you look at the clip, then I think itís obvious that Holgate is the one with the error. He chooses to step right, so Chilwell have space. Unintelligent of Holgate in my opinion as he can see the two Chelsea players. The one he tries to cover is not the dangerous one. Even at my level of football this would be a big mistake. Itís important to stay in your zone. It has to be said, Doucoure should never have used his arms to stop Chilwell. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=K-FRaOrIiSU
