What's a good alternative to 4-2-3-1?

Topic says it all. Sort of.

But I'll elaborate a little more about how I like to play:
- control possession
- attack - alot!
- not sitting back

Well... That's about it I guess. This year I've mostly attacked through the middle, but I don't mind attacking down the wings either.

I think I'm fairly decent at manual defending. Usually better than my opponents at least 😛

In previous years I have loved 4-3-3(4) and 4-1-2-1-2 narrow.

    I really like 4222 the wide cams are what I was missing at the beginning of the game

    I played 4231 a lot. At some point I decided that one DM is enough and so I switched to 4121 (narrow) which I found as a very effective formatiom. Especially because of the two strikers who create many chances by forward runs or one two passing.
    Important is to have a good cam (Neymar does it for me, behind Salah and FB Icardi) and two central midfielders with the right work rates (high/med is good, high/high even better, anything low is not so good).

    However, sometimes I also use 4222, when I have to work against very offensive players.
