Football Manager 2018 Tactics - Easy 4-2-3-1 Beginner FM18 Tactic
As the title suggests, this tactic is for beginners, so if you are looking for something like 'unbeatable' tactic, this one might not be suitable for you. But if you simply want to enjoy the feeling of being the manager of your favourite team, and lead them to an expected (or even better) position, then you can give it a try.

Also, you should know that the tactic is designed for a strong team or at least above average.

Here is the tactic:

IMPORTANT: the key position for this tactic is the striker, RPM, right winger (AP) and right full back.

Here are the team instructions:

Really simple, right ? If the opponent is stronger than you or your possession rate is lower than the opponent, change the mentality to standard or counter.

To explain in simple words, this tactic adopts a fairly quick passing game, and the main way to score is from the crosses coming from the right side. Your striker and left winger should be your main scoring threats. Your RPM has to be good enough to help control the game, make sure his passing, off the ball, technique and work rate are high.

I manage arsenal to get 84 points in the league, but still only finished 3rd. However, I won the 3 cup competitions, so I am pretty satisfied with it.

IMPORTANT: Don't be afraid to make changes during match or between match. You can try to change the role of some players to deal with different opponents, replace some bad form players with their substitutes (even they are core players), but try not to change the team instructions too much.

Here's an alternative of same formation with some different roles:
