The biggest hole we have in defensive and attacking headers is going from Perišić to Dimarco

luckily Dumfries is kinda good at it, but he ain't no Perišić

I’m in favor of trying a 3412 thing with Brozovic and Calha as pivots and Barella in front of them. I know we tried something similar under Conte and it failed miserably, but I also don’t think we had the right mentality/ personality to play like that at the time.

*Theoretically* as long as one of the pivots is always in position to be able to defend, we should have decent coverage through the middle anyway. The bigger concern is on the wings. We don’t have enough pace and then we over commit out wide and it leaves us totally exposed. I’m not really sure what the answer is there other than to improve tactics/ communication and to stay more compact as a defensive unit in general.

Inzaghi needs to fix the set pieces defense and should be the number one priority. Inter can't do anything about pace on the wings unless Bellanova starts, then we'll worry about his defense and the " youthful mistakes". Additionally, these cheap and dangerous giveaways in the midfield by Barella, Mkhitaryan, Hakan among others have to be reduced, at times it seems they are telegraphing their passes to the opposition in Inter's own half.

Skriniar
Saw someone say on Twitter that he has basically the whole backline available for the duration of the break: Skriniar, Acerbi, Bastoni, Dimarco, Gosens, Darmian, Bellanova. Missing Dumfries and De Vrij.

Means he has a LOT of time to fix this disastrous defending we've been seeing.

Exactly. Sort out the amount of goals we are conceding. (Far too many up to now.) And we really can guarantee doing something. Feels as though we have got away with it a bit when you look at the table.

I agree in principle, but I still feel like the issue is more how the team is set up vs. “fixing the back line.” Everyone on the pitch has to be involved in defending.

We are too slow to play stylistically like we did under Conte on a regular basis. Hakimi, Perisic, and Lukaku were the three fastest players on that team, and they're all gone.
Is this why we are conceding a lot too?
