Manchester United - Receiving Between The Lines

🎥 How to receive between the lines and create danger? Here is a clip by Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

🧑‍🏫 The space between the lines are the "pockets" that are free or unoccupied between the defensive and midfield line of the opponent. Finding this space requieres high game-insight as it only becomes available momentarily.

👀 It is important to scan the field before receiving the ball, check over your shoulder to make sure there is no defender man-marking you. Put yourself in the correct body position, and receive with the far foot.

🚦 Vertical attack against the back-four once the pass has broken the midfield defensive line. Speed is crucial during this phase.
