Train Like Arsenal. Play Like Arsenal. “Coming out May 1st on”…….


This 5v2 game requires quick passing, fast thinking and proper positioning in order to keep possession.  The grid is two 20×10 yards split into 2 separate 10×10 yard grids.  The blue team sends 2 defenders as the red team keeps possession with a 2-touch limit per/player.  As the players skill level increases make the game 1-touch only.  The coach should count  the number of passes made.  The team who connects the most passes in one possession is the winner – play 10 possessions per/team – rotating every possession.  Feel free to vary the rules and customize the grid size to fit the skill level.  This exercise is one of 15+ that is in my book “Train Like Arsenal. Play Like Arsenal.”
