Some of the in-match advice I get from my assistant often says that a player is getting too much space and needs to be closed down. I don't disagree - these are usually guys who are driving all the attacks against us, but when they are strikers I never set the Opposition Instructions to close them down because then I'm assuming my defence will allow him to pull them out of position and create an easy opening for their second striker.

Am I wrong?

What should I be doing here? I hate going up against 2 strikers especially when one of them is really good.

Any advice please guys?

Thanks :)
