    Yes very good and very solid, wingers are very involved and striker work well

    Haven't found it bad defensively either

    Do you need to have an elite CM in order to do well?

    Yeah definitely requires good CMs who are well rounded matuidi and hamsik would be a good duo

    Box to Box midfielders, pacey wingers, one tall one small agile striker and you are set.

    Fullbacks should be strong defensively as you don't want them pushing up.

    Thats why you have a tall striker (Lewa / Ibra type) to loft the ball into when needed or get the smaller striker to drop back with player instructions where needed.

    Or just go with 4411, thats what I'm doing currently.

    It was effective before the patch and is still effective afterwards
