any suggestion how to play against this i play 4231(2) was on for Elite 3 but couldn't win a game cause all i came up was players who sat deep and counter me

i tried going defensive but this limited my attacking play

sometimes i see it coming try putting players in position and still was ineffective

    Set your WB's and 1 of your CM's to stay back while attacking, you also need to play a possession game and be patient, draw out the mistake in his defence and punish him.

    For most players like this, just keep the ball. They'll eventually get so frustrated and change tactics, that's when you go a bit more attacking and break them down

    I find setting CDM's on stay back and Fullbacks on always overlap. Puts your opponents players on the defensive making the counter harder

    Possession and slower build up play works.

    Just frustrate the life out of them..

    I love doing it to people when they still play that way after going 1 or 2 nil down

    This is what I find too. Setting your fullbacks to stay back doesn't fix the problem because you can't play the way you are used to. I just defend very aggressively and accept that I might concede some goals on the break.
