Hi there,

I need some help getting my striker scoring more ... im with Man Utd playing a 4-2-3-1 Wide and may play always seems to go through my AML and AMR who can score though Martial in AP is stranded and scores the occasional tap in or long range screamer

As much as I love Rashford banging in the goals - there are times where i want Martial or Greenwood making the run in behind the defence from a through ball from Rashford or Daniel James on the wings or Fernandes in AMC (he always passes it short to keep possession or plays it out wide

Any tips? i want to play possession football though have those bursting runs into the box from the Striker

Also if I can get more from Fernandes putting my striker in behind also it would be great!

Maybe i can help.
Your playing the same attacking front-3-system that i also played with United.

3 things:
1st thing....Martial is not a great striker in general and i used him as back-up on the AML (Inside forward) position because he is disappointing as a striker. After 2 seasons i sold him.

2nd thing... For your tactics remember to select 'pass into space' this will help the players like Fernandes play balls in behind the defense for your Striker to run on to and score.

3rd thing...IF you continue to use Martial as a striker, he does have great speed and acceleration (plus your AML and AMR also are fast players) so i can recommend that you go to tactics and select 'goal keeper distribution' and on the football map click on the top which say something like 'over the teams defense'.

Point number 3 basically translates into this your goalkeeper (De Gea) will look long and hit the ball over the other teams defense for Martial or Rashford to run on to. It works great against slow defenders. and if you have Martial set to CF or AF then he should also be ready to run.

I hope that the above can help you.
