Hi im playin as Man U in my 1st season with them doing very well won the premier league and league cup and in the final for champions league + fa cup. But I tend to struggle a lot against big teams away from home and have to end up scraping wins by a set piece or counter attack goal near the end. At home I have no problem as I beat Man city 2-0, Chealsea 3-0, Tottenham 3-0 and Arsenal 2-0 (haven't played liverpool yet) but away from home its a different case. I played the standard 4-4-2 against all of those teams above and did well but away from home that and the 4-5-1 dnt seem to be working for me and I have to settle for draws or very tough wins.

Iv'e played Liverpool away from home and I was winning on two ocassions but they equalised twice and could have won the match it ended 2-2 in the end and it was the same against arsenal even though I beat them 3-1 they dominated me throughout the match and only failed to score because they couldn't get in my box.

Any suggestions for a new away tactic?
I'll post any current print screens if you guys need them
