im currently managing man city aswell, the tactic you are using sounds good, but when you are playing them away maybe change your mentality to defensive and counter attack on seeing as your playing chelsea they will come at you, and you can just catch them on the CA. another thing that might work is if you get a lead change your time wasting to often that way your team wastes as much time as possible and your passing to short that way you make quick little passes which will tire the opponents out. thats what i did my first game against a big club and it worked. so give it a try and i hope i gave you atleast sometype of idea on what to do:D

good tactic

ive read this forum , cuz i had the same problem , since ive had it ive played plenty of seasons and all ways found it hard to beat top 4,

iam newcastle got a good board take over so good some good signings in , and came up against chelsea away,

after 5 mins i was 1 -0 down due to n'zogbia poor marking

but on 20 min defoe (my new signing) got 1 back

and then threw out the game i just frustrated them and got a 1-1 draw which i think any newcastle mananger in 1st would take ,

p.s havent played arsenal yet , they are the ones i find it really hard to beat or even draw

but this is a good start

steaua bucharests tactic helped a bit better;) ( when playing against higher teams use defensive and use counter-attack ).

On training schedules for strikers im going to put more on shooting aswell that should help.
Im doing bad now
