There are many ways to get a pass around a defender to the desired receiver. It is all about seeing the arm and leg placement of the defender. Once you have seen that, you will see the passing gaps.

If you are being strongly pressured by the defender, you will want to use your pivot to protect the ball and also to give yourself a better passing angle.

When being pressured there is no place for the chest pass. All passes have to include a step to the side of the defender and passing the ball from that side of your body, or an overhead pass.

The piggy/monkey in the middle drill is great for learning these skills.
