    You can put winger instructions on your LM/RM in the 442(2) which are more detailed than the wide CAM options in the 4222. Those players will tuck inside a bit more in the latter formation and be in prime position to take finesse shots from outside the box.

    In the 442(2), they tend to hug the sideline a bit more which allows them to cross inside or drible down the sideline/goal line to try and take it in themselves. If you like to cross and/or have dynamic wingers like TOTY Mbappe or TOTS Salah, go with the 442. If you use players like FB Mahrez and prefer a shorter build up and passing game with first time finesse shots, go with the 4222.

    442(2) has more players starting deeper, meaning its even better for drop back! >:)
