Football Manager 2017 Tactics - Samurai Elite 4-1-4-1
Those who have followed Bayern Munich matches can remember the sheer domination which can be achieved with this formation. Of course it is not a full simulation of it, but my best try to translate it into the language of FM.

The players are in fairly deep positions, but due to the pressing method it transforms into a 4-3-3 when attacking. All 4 midfield players are making forward runs which makes the opposition defence under constant pressure. Although the lone striker will be the main scorer, the wide midfielders are also represented in the scoreline very often. There is no restriction on whether the WMs should be left or right footed since they are not instructed to either cut inside or to hug the line.

!Important! Play on Control mentality at home and Standard on away matches.
