Analysis

Xisco switched Watford to the 1-4-3-3 formation, although the playing shape is actually 4-1-4-1 with a deep defensive midfielder and an attacking triangle in the center.

Wide play is the key to offensive action. Wingers often go inside leaving space for the full-backs to overlap. Then the five attacking players will give you more complex offensive moves.

Xisco prefers to posses the ball, although Watford still has apparent problems with distribution and their shape prefers a rather direct play style. They take the ball high by aggressive pressing in the opponent’s half. They rarely comes deep and have problems absorbing the rivals’ pressure.

However, they can move in a compact and order leaving the opponent little space for a positional play.
