Coaching Tactics

Roberto Martinez is a vastly experienced tactician. He marshals his troops according to the games. However, he prefers the 3-4-2-1 formation.

He deploys a 3-man backline at the defense’s heart, giving defensive solidity. Wing-backs are crucial in his game plan.

While defending, the wing-backs stay deep and form a 5-man backline. They get freedom while attacking, making forward runs into the enemy territory to provide crosses. Thomas Meunier plays as a wing-back in Roberto Martinez’s formation.

Up front, a lone striker plays in front of two attacking midfielders, usually Eden Hazard and De Bruyne.
