Hi guys,

I was looking for some advise on this formation. I currently play a 4321, with default tactics and struggling at times to keep a clean sheet and score. I was looking to try a new formation, preferably one where I can get the most out of Pogba.

I noticed that whenever I play people using the 433(4) formation, they manage to keep the ball very well, and somehow keep a solid defence, even though they only have 2 central mods for cover.

Does anyone have any good customs tactics and player instructions for this formation? And is it worth using in weekend league, or is it better to just stick with the 4321?

Any advice is very much appreciated.

    Do you keep a lot of clean sheets with only 1 midfielder staying back?

    Yeah I keep one midfielder to stay back (both fullbacks too) and have no problems defending. It helps to have one CDM or B2B "engine midfielder" (Vidal, Naingolan, Matuidi, etc) and another more offensive midfielder that can still help defend (Modric, POTM Alli, Hamsik)

    You have to defend a lot with the CMs so you should have a solid CM on the bench to sub in just in case. You might not keep clean sheets but there is very many chances created with the formation so scoring shouldn't be an issue once you get used to it

    No but I usually outscore my opponent TOTS Dzeko is great in this formation
