I wrote this some time ago, but you should take a look. You can skip half of it if it may not be useful, but I suggest looking at it. Not for my sake.

Play counter or defensive with a fluid philosophy.

Campbell poacher - Set run on to ball.

Give Adam and Martin high creativity and play central midfielders - support.

Play Taylor Fletcher and Grandin as wingers attack.

Tbf, it is Arsenal. They are one of the strongest teams in the Premier League.

Juggle it around for the next 10-15, maybe even 20 games and come back. It takes time to gel.

Also put it in your match preparation. Preferrably on High, or Very High.
