Okay you are playing 4-5-1 tactic, defensive oriented it seems to me that while looking to your team instructions, that you like to control them as like they some kind opf robots (no offense :))
I think that Flanagan isn't quite suitable to go forward and perform his defensive duties like he supposed to. So i would tell him to defend. Also Bonucci and Caulker are set to wrong instructions. if you play with DMC you doesn't need a stopper especially if he got low decisions and anticipation attributes, along with composure and concentration. But decision and anticipation are key. If you have DMC and stopper they will collapse of each other. and you have acomplished nothing. Set them both in line with central defender DEfend duty, but turn off offside traps. And don't be afraid to put your defensive line little bit higher, you have quite many players in midfield and defence, and you have decent pace in the defence, so there will be no problems with that, and Ochoa will thank you greatly for extorting centre of action from his area so that he can goalkeep like a man :)

Also Adam Henley to be with support role is ludacris. MAn have attribute 1 for crossing at the start of the game...he should be defending too. Also Vass and N'zonzi can't be in the same team together. They are the same players. If you use Anchorman then you should use Advanced not Deep Lying playmaker and Box to box or Defensive midfielder support, or central midfielder support. of the other two central mid's. Personally I would set them like this (don't look at names, or instructions, only positions):

Where Nzonzi or Vass would be in DM area with Defensive Mid. - Support role so that he can roam to fill the blank on the right and behind AMC when needed. AMC would be retrained Rochina, since he got come deep to get the ball ppm, and his role would be Trequartista. You need Nsue to pe the poacher, since he got pretty good off the ball and pace, to lure away defenders aside that Rochina can profit. Also you got three the same players Anderson, Vass and N'zonzi i recommend to get rid of the one you don't like the most and Invest in some Creative First touch passing kind of player. like jack rodwell from everton if want someone long time, or M'villa if you got the money to buy, or Tom Cairney from hull city if you are poor, or Evandro from Red Star if you are poor too. REgarding Wingers both of them shopuld be different Moses to cross not to cut inside, and other one with better finishing stats to be Inside forward.

Then you should be more competitive.

Sorry for taking too long to respond but I wanted to detailedly explain what I mean. If you have something that you are not understanding from my post, feel free to ask me anytime.

Good Luck !
