FM 2015 Tactics - Ryan's 4-2-3-1 Domination
I will start off my FM15 tactics with my 4-2-3-1 that I created with Chelsea and 10 games in we have been brilliant as you can see here:



Formation, Player Roles and Team Instructions

The formation is a wide 4-2-3-1 with CMs:



I felt that this suited Chelsea's real style of play with the wing backs that go forward and back and the wingers also coming back to support, I also have the 2 CMs and 2 Wingers set to swap positions as you see that happen alot during Chelsea games.

As for Team Instructions I have Retain Possession on because the board want me to but my philosophy is that a win is a win and having possession gets you no-where unless you are clinical so this tactic is not for you if you are looking for a Possession based tactic despite having the Retain Possession tactic. Besides the possession I have a Much Lower tempo as that is how Chelsea tend to play in real life with slow build-up from the back then getting it to Hazard who does his magic. Other than that I have closing down and tighter marking as that fits in with my personal philosophy.

I leave Opposition Instructions to my assistant Mauro Tassotti (who I highly recommend)

Tip

If you get a player sent off I always take off the striker and its worked quite well so far with my team scoring 2 goals in 2 matches when players have been sent off!

    I play Hazard left but left and right wingers swap!
  • Ksed's avatar
    Where do you use Hazard ? Because I just got hired by Chelsea and it might be great. I still have Fabregas and Cuardado, Oscar etc etc so I could use Hazard everywhere.
    Left ? or center ?
    Thank you it looks great.

    Good work, what mentality and team shape do you use?
    Also do you use player instructions?
    Cheers!

    Its attacking and fluid and I have 1 player instruction on the goalkeeper and set the 2 CMs to swap and 2 wingers to swap which they do untold times in a game!
