Positioning v Porto

The Telegraph have players average positioning graphic in their match reports, and looking at Tuesday’s, I find it very interesting that Nasri, Eboue and Bendtner all occupied the same area. This shows that Bendtner was dropping deep, either defensively or to pick up the ball from midfield, and it also shows Nasri’s role meant he was able to play right behind Bendtner, with Song and Diaby giving midfield cover.
