Southampton full-back Cedric Soares has stated that he believes full-backs are the key to Southampton turning their poor scoring record around.
As we have seen at Manchester City, Chelsea, and Spurs, overloads on the flanks are now critical to the build-up play in the Premier League. "We need to have attacking full backs because they can make the difference sometimes," commented Cedric. "All the teams we play are defensively organised and sometimes you need a man from the back to make up that extra man." He explained that it wasn't even all about crossing, as even the presence of player can create space by drawing a man. On a personal level, the Portuguese knows he needs to get more assists and get his first goal for Southampton. He added that he thinks the team are building momentum at the moment after a win vs Palace and a good second-half against Manchester United. Sep 27 - 11:45 AM
