Football Manager 2021 Tactics - Daniel Farke 4-2-3-1 Norwich
In defense Norwich press extremly high with offensive midfielder supporting the striker in 1-4-4-2 formation or puts pressure on his opponent’s defensive midfielder (then 1-4-2-3-1). The full-backs also press high just behind the midfielders providing protection on the wings. The key to quick interceptions is that attackers are your first line of defense.

After intercepting the ball he urges the team to immediately vertical pass. Only when this fails does he maintain possession and play from the back with sequences of short passes at a variable pace. They are not afraid to play in their own third period (31% of the game, against 27% in the third period of their opponents). However, passing the ball quickly to the wingers (Buendia, Cantwell) is their favorite strategy.

Above in the attack, Farke likes the 1-2-4-4 shape where the center midfielder and center defender are involved in a box-like structure. It closes the wings and when their second lane encounters strong pressure from the opponent or l, the other players close by to fill the gaps and quickly recover the ball.
