Keith Satuku for Off the Post:
West Ham also adopted a high pressing game to deny Spurs the space to play out from the back. Diafra Sakho led the pressing by occupying the hosts’ central defenders. In central midfield, Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate pressed as advanced central midfielders, while Song worked just in front of the defenders where he policed the space in between the lines.
Channeling my inner Yoda it seems.
