Getting beaten in an aerial duel is one thing, simply backing out of one in the final third is unacceptable and needs to be highlighted.

Having said that, why is Özil the one having to mark Williams in whilst Koscielny and Giroud are double marking 5'9'' Calvert-Lewin...

Also what on earth is Iwobi doing other than obstructing Cech's view? If you're not going to mark anyone, at least put yourself one on of the goal posts to prevent a potential attempt from going in. Even a 14-year old knows this ffs.

Too many howlers at once ffs, so avoidable.

LOL re: Iwobi. Does he think he's the keeper otherwise why else would he be positioned there, marking no one?

But, yeah, there's a lot of things wrong in that gif and its concerning. Should switch to man marking if zonal isn't working, imo
Bellerin Saliba Sokratis Tierney
(Niles/Osei-Tutu) (Mustafi/Dinos) (Holding/Medley) (Kolasinac/Bola)
Guendouzi --- Ceballos
(Torreira/Elneny) --- (Ozil/Willock)
Pepe -------------------- Auba
(ESR/Mkhi) -------------------- (Nelson/Saka)

zonal marking baybeeeeeee

tbf zonal is usually the best bet most of the time but players should be shifting zones to nullify the opponents strong in the air players

Literally every team practices a mix of zonal and man marking for corners. Except us.
