Football Manager 2021 Tactics - Solskjær's 4-2-3-1 Man Utd Tactics

BRUNO FERNANDES ON FIRE! OGS 4231 Man Utd Recreation

Video Analysis

There are two players who often get a lot of touches on the ball and play the most passes in the team and that would suggest Manchester United use those players as a focal point. The two full-backs also receive a lot of touches on the ball and are important to this system as they provide Manchester United with width.

Manchester United are a forward-thinking team. They like to play the ball forward and attempt risky passes in order to try and break the opposition down. Often when the attacking wide players receive the ball, they look to come inside with the ball rather than wide and the full-backs don’t send in many crosses when they receive the ball out wide. The full-backs positioning is key for Manchester United as they are a tool to stretch the play. Once Manchester United have possession of the ball, they push and stay wider.

On the ball, Manchester United attempt a few numbers of dribbles towards the opponent's defence. Manchester United slightly favour their left side when attacking and building but this can actually depend on where Paul Pogba is playing. When he is on the left side of central midfield then a lot of play seems to happen on the left.

Just like most of the top sides in Europe, Manchester United like to press high or at least have some aggression whilst pressing for the ball. Manchester United prefer to defend using a high-block but then can drop when they take their more counter-attacking approach.

    Is this more defensive compared to a "normal" 4-2-3-1?

    I will give it a try in my Bolton save in the 4th season
