Anyone know any good line up with 3 defenders or 1 striker

I have always struggled in FM, when trying to play with 3 defenders or 1 striker.

Would prefer a line up with either 3-2-3-2 (3 fullback defenders, 2 central midfielders, 2 offensive wingers, 1 offensive playmaking midfielder and two strikers). The thing i struggle with here is that i lose the flanks and there by my players sucks, its like i need a left and right defender.

Or id anyone know a good way to play 4-2-3-1 and have the striker to actually play good, for me he always sucks and like never scores.

Pretty much always use 4-3-1-2 and won it all with Arsenal, but would like to be able to use players like Gervinho, Chamberlain and Ryo etc. who dont fit in my tactic.

Anyone know anything that might help me?
