Football Manager 2022 Tactics - Graham Potter 3-5-2 Brighton // FM22 Tactic
Graham Potter changes the shape and formation of his team almost every game, although it is not difficult to see that it is the 3-5-2 (in many variations) that suits him best.

Controlling the width he prefers 3-4-2-1, while the center in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Using low pressing he often chooses 4-4-2 diamond, while narrowing the field of play and reloading the center he does not hesitate to set up 3-5-1-1.

This requires from his players not only flexibility and versatility, but also the ability to play in different positions in different formations.

After losing possession the team easily changes the formation to 3-5-1-1 or 3-5-2 (one of the offensive midfielders moves to the midline) which protects the centre from penetration and gives more chances to recover the ball effectively.

Potter likes to attack in a 2-3-5 (back four) or 3-2-5 (back three) formation.

Characteristic of Brighton in the first stages of attack is a very compact formation and cautious progress to protect from losing the ball and rivals’ counter-attacks.
