Defensive formation

I admit I am not very good at defending so I'm wondering what are the best formations for users who aren't that skilled at defending? Any suggestions? Also, prefer formations with 2 strikers if possible.

    Imo the most defensive (not meaning negative here) formations are 4231 variants but you should look at balance first.

    Try a flat 442, that way you can find out what you like and don't like. Move to a 442-2 if are being over run in midfield. Go to a 41212 if your suffering from lack of creation.

    When I've been using teams with low defending stats I've generally used the 5-2-1-2 formation.

    It seems to have offered me a lot more defensive cover, plus options for the counter.

    Thanks for the help guys. I'm going to do some experimenting with those formations.
