    I play 41212 narrow. If I play against a team with wingers I'll just set my fullbacks to stay back, if it's against another narrow formation I leave them.

    That's the only thing I change, I don't think you really need to do a lot else to counter different formations.

    I use the 4312 and the only formations that truly give me trouble are the 4231 and 442. If I see them I auto switch to the 4231. Kinda sucks though because Im forced to use either Pogba or De Bruyne out wide, play defensive till half then sub Sterling on. Works though. Mirroring the other teams formation will tighten the game up and generally the better player will win.

    If im trailing vs a good player using either of those formations then Ill switch to the 3412, go full attack and hope I dont concede before the 'special effects' take place and I start dominating posession lol
