    433 (4) looks more like a vertical formation for me. To attack fast, with counters and all. But with no CDM and just two CMs your deffense is probably overexposed.
    4231 is what I'm using for the last 40 games. Your cams are very involved, and the CDMs can add some passes and keep your defense safe. I also use a targetman as a st (ibra), and the CAMs kinda plays for him

    4231 is well balanced formation
    Defensively it's great as you've got two cdms
    And also attacking using cams instead of wingers.

    thx guys...at this point...the cdms you using what work rates they have? you use normal attacking/ high defending or?
    im thinking to build around 92 kante...using him as cdm or using 90 luiz as cdm ( but i guess he will not work well) and kante as cam ( wondering if he will do his job attacking...)

    Mines are H/H both cdms stay at the back while attacking.
    You need fast and agile cdms, to break up play of the opposition.

    My wide CAMs tend to turn in to inside forward type wingers. Vidal + Thiago army the type of players I'd consider there. But as they're so OP anyway chances are it wouldn't matter.

    The central CAM should be the more conventional CAM to me

    this is what I use at the minute:

    What I find between 4231 and 433(4) which I used to play is that the wide CAMS are slightly narrower than the wingers in 433 which helps with support to the lone striker, and they drift into the space between the full backs and the centre backs. I tend to keep the central cam on balanced defence too so that he links up the defensive midfielders with the attack minded players and finds the space "in the hole". with Kante (M/H) and Can (M/M) I find that they are great at breaking up play and tend to alternate which one has pushed forward quite well. They also cover the full backs well when they are caught further up the pitch.
