As I've stated before, I think its almost amateurish to play anything other than four at the back against good opposition.

He shuffled his backline because Alex was out ... wrong decision that led to no wing play (apart from the Korean guy on the right) + left Farfan trying to create something on the left. After half-time, when he switched back to a conventional 4-4-2 layout, despite PSV conceding more, they played much better till they kinda gave up on the game. That Ecuadorian Mendez was quite impressive ... definitely a good buy.
