Using the information from the three opening games of the Premier League season I have recreated Nuno Espirito Santos' 4-3-3 at Tottenham this season.


The Tactic

In the video I explain why I have picked each position and what I expect from it on Football Manager.
Using WhoScored and StatsZone, I have best tried to replicate what Nuno has done with Spurs this season, from who the main playmaker in the midfield is, what positions to use out wide and how to recreate how Dele Alli is playing in midfield.

Three versions

No team plays exactly the same in every game, so I have included the main version, a more cautious version for coming up against the likes of Man City and Liverpool. There is also an alternative version to try and push Son closer to Harry Kane in attack.

All explained in the video.

After playing from the first part of the season, the video shows examples of the play during the game against Arsenal.

Let me know what you think of this recreation.


No training was used for this video/tactic

Set Pieces

Included in the tactic is the corner set up to get the best out of the Spurs XI in the 433 formation.
