I always start a career with Scunthorpe united a low tier team and since i have been using this tactic i have won the premier league and champions league titles and both in a season during the couple FMS I have been using this.
One of the keys to this formation is.
The DLP (Deep Lying Playmaker) aim for world class this guy is going to be the heartbeat of your team he runs the show from deep in the pitch.
Also your SK (Sweeper Keeper) must have excellent one on ones stats aim for as high as possible.
Hope you enjoy this tactic and it brings you as much success as it has me.
On the screen shots is my second season so far in the premier league you can see I lost to Chelsea and Manchester United I was very unlucky in these games as I was either down to 10 men or conceded injuries to major players the Watford defeat was because I still had my b team and youth players in the team accidentally keeping youth and b team players in after a low key Europa League match.
