Reaction score
I created a 4-1-3-2 formation for my Man Utd team which has been solid, conceding very few goals but I lack consistent goals. I can go away to Liverpool and win 4-0 and then draw 0-0 with Wolves.

Full backs are set to Attacking (Fabio, Rafael, Evra, Coleman, Kolarov)
Centre backs are set to Defensive and are specifically told not to move from position

Deep lying playmaker set to Defend, usually Michael Carrick spraying balls to forward players.

An Advanced playmaker set to attack, usually Marek Hamsik or Charlie Adam.

My two other centre mids are set to box-to-box (Fletchinho, Anderson etc)

Strike partnership is Rooney (Advanced forward attack) and Cavani (Poacher).

Team settings: Fluid, Control.

I'd just like to ideally get my team scoring consistently.

If you want any additional information, post and I'll get back to you asap.

Thanks in advance
