So following on from my last thread my new team looks as follows:

NEW TEAM:

4-1-2-1-2

Butland

Walker Smalling Kosc Rose

Kante

Mahrez Payet

Rooney

Vardy SIF Benteke

Leaves me around 60k for any upgrades next week. I know the hype around Martial however I've always fancied trying out Payet. May try out IF Zaha to link in with Benteke however Mahrez is one of the few players I've enjoyed playing with this year.

My question is does anyone have any advice for the team / specific player instructions? I've always just played 'default' from not having that luxury in years gone by however I've seen a few threads on the topic so any advice would be much appreciated.

I will make the weekend league before Fifa 18!!

    YouTube custom tactics and player instructions to fit your playing style bud....it sure does help. You have a solid squad, however, the work rates for rooney and Vardy are not good, in my opinion. Maybe change them...cheers and good luck

    If you're playing the wide version of 4 1 2 1 2 which it looks like with Mahrez and Payet I would swap it up for the narrow version or even try 4 3 1 2 which gives you 2 striker options again. A lot of people play narrow formations this year so they may overpower you or cut you open in midfield. You could try Fernandinho and Can in midfield instead of Payet and Mahrez and try Martial out as Striker or CAM. You have a solid GK and Defence with some ppl preferring Bellerin over Walker or Bailly over Koscienly it's just personal preference again. Others who I have found OP are Sterling, Walcott, Lukaku and Mkhitaryan.

    Cheers mate. Found Vardy terrible as a lone striker however he works pretty well in a 2. Did try Coutinho as CAM but I never seemed to do anything with him.

    4-3-1-2 got me all the way to D2 until the wheels came off - D5 now and can't buy a win! I have Can on my bench and have tried a few of the players you mentioned - Sterling was good, Lukaku not so much.

    I don't have a mic as I broke the one I got my my Xbox and didn't think it was worth the money replacing. I just get to hear people trolling me through my TV speakers now. I'll check that guy out mate thank you.
