The style of the game
Considered a promising young prospect Chiesa is a gifted quick, skilled, and hard-working player with an excellent technique, small size, and a slim build. With good stamina, speed and dribbling ability He is usually an oblique right winger, the position that allows him to create scoring chances for his teammates specifically when he crosses his ball over the penalty area with his more powerful right foot. Additionally, he is capable of scoring goals for himself and is able to play on the left side of the wing, a job that lets him defeat opponents using the ball in one-on-one situations and cut into the center of the field to score in the goal using his bigger foot, especially in the outside of the penalty zone, despite being a skilled striker with the left side of his foot.
In addition to his preferred roles on either flanks He has also been employed in various other positions of attack, due to his ability to play anyplace in the front line. He has typically been employed in a central position in the form of an attacking midfielder, or as a second striker, but has been employed as a main striker at times. There have been occasions when he was utilized in deeper midfield roles such as central midfielder. His speed and agility off the ball allows him to take advantage of spaces and create attacking runs to go past defensive lines and give the team with depth.
Apart from his primary tasks in attacking and defense, he is also well-known for his work-rate and energy and frequently contributes to the defensive part in the match by pressuring players and chasing opponents’ wingers on the flanks in order to gain possession and even employed as a right-sided wing back as part of a formation with a 3 5.
