Although Talles Magno is often utilized by Ronny Deila on the wing he brings an interesting profile. 

The teenager is tactically versatile and has played as both a left-winger and central striker during his time in the Big Apple. That fluency makes him an intriguing proposition in-game, with the Brazilian able to quickly switch between the mentality of a creative winger and a predatory striker. This is best evidenced when he links up with Taty Castellanos. 

The pair fashioned chances for each other in the space of a few minutes during the first half against Columbus, and that makes them a dangerous proposition. Both men found themselves on the scoresheet, with Talles striking first. 

While on paper a 4-2-3-1, it can at times seem like a 4-4-2 and that flexibility offers the team a unique tactical advantage as we saw against the Crew.
