Black is up a pawn but the Knight is under attacked. There are 2 plans for Black to choose.
1-Move the Knight to safety
2-Continue the attack to remove all the Queenside pawns

For the plan 1:

Now the situation is unbalanced, Black is up a pawn but White is controlling 2 beautiful outposts for his Knights



For the plan 2:

Now the materials on both sides are balanced. However, Black is securing the X-ray a8-h1 which is dangerous for White, but it can be blocked after White's move e4
