Football Manager 2020 Tactics - Solskjaer's 4231 & 433 FM20 Tactics by RDF

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Recreation 4231 & 433

Table results:

Tactical Shape:

IN FM20: When playing against top teams that enjoy possession, then move the Defensive Line to higher and remove "Get Stuck In"
I also prefer the 4231 system, i think it is stronger but 433 can be used to switch things up!

Tactical Details:

Counter-Attacking Football! Getting the ball to the 3 quick and dangerous attacking in space!
Contains a double pivot. This allows us to play from defence in a smoother manner also hides the poor agility of Nemanja Matic

Double Pivot between Matic & Paul Pogba

Man Utd also like to create overload and overlapping situations on the left flank. By doing this you draw the opponents the this side of the pitch, leaving the attacking players on the right side in space

For effective counter attack, Man Utd like to play compact. This makes it very difficult for teams to break down and allows Man Utd to transition into the counter attack effectively

Here is Man Utds real life AVG position when using their 4231 system

Here is my FM20 AVG positioning

    I was being sarcastic. Utd is real life get lots of pens, this tactic to be realistic needs to replicate.
