Exactly. No turn and drive which creates a change in pace of the move and unsettles opposition.These guys all had the spatial awareness - they knew when they had that little bit of time and space in order to pull that move off.
By contrast you have guys like Xhaka, Elneny and Torreira (to a lesser extent... let's see him next season with more confidence) who don't even try to look over their shoulder when they receive the ball in an area they're likely to be pressed in. They're **** scared and would rather pass it back first time to the defender. It's no wonder our play is so useless.
