Anyone tried 3-1-4-2 formation?

Tempted to make a team to try this formation with the following players.

GK - Handanovic
RCB - Manolas
CB - Godin
LCB - Koulibaly

CDM - Allan

RM - OTW Maxim
RCM - Sissoko
LCM - Paulinho
LM - D.Costa

RST - Kane
LST - Lucas

Everyone would be 10 chem and I love everything about this squad besides being unsure about the 3 at the back part of it.

Anyone tried 3 at the back this year and this formation in particular?

    I've been using 352 but today I can't defend at all so it's been frustrating. 3142 does look interesting, I haven't seen much talk about it but 3atb users are a rarity.

    I'm using 3412 and I'm liking it a lot. Biggest advantage of 3atb is the numbers that you have while attacking.

    Just make sure your LCB and RCB are a little faster so that they can cover the wings. The CDM will serve as the 4th defender when necessary so it's still effectively 4atb with low width.

    I’ve been using 352 and I’m loving it. Even when I lose - I just love the versatility 3atb gives you.

    My team:

    GK - Leno
    CBs- Sokratis, Laporte & Hernandez
    LM - Coman
    RM - Pepe
    CDMs- Sissoko, Ddombele
    CAM - Modric (incredible card!!!)
    STs- Jovic, Rodrigo
