Stephen Carr on...

The difference between playing right full-back and wing-back...

"The main difference is cover. In a five, I don't have cover the centre-halves as much because there are three against two attackers and they should cover each other.

"In a four, I have to tuck around more. You have licence to bomb on in a five but it's hard because you have to look after their winger and full-back.

"There is a difference between a five and four but it's as hard. You can bomb on more because you are further up the pitch but you also have to get back.

"In a four you have to support the centre-halves a lot more. In a three there is always a centre-half covering."
