FM 2016 Tactics - FM16 Tactic - Play Like Leicester
Leicester are currently sitting on top of the Premier League playing a style of Counter Attacking Football similar to the style Man United used in 1994. This video shows you how to set up your team, or specifically Leicester, in FM16 and be a genuine force in the Premier League.

All information is in the Video, but here's a summary:
  • Play Deep,
  • Keep Formation
  • Get ball forward fast
  • Play wingers with Pace, Stamina and Work rate.
  • Keep Jamie Vardy Happy!
  • Change forward roles if needed.
  • Defense should never get caught out of position.
  • Never have as much Possession as the other team.

NOTE: Set plays are set to my preference. Edit if you like.

You can also find this file on Steam Workshop.
