I'm trying to build a replica of Pep's Man City 4-1-4-1 with inverted wingbacks but I'm just not having much success. I feel like the shape should look like more of a 2-3-2-3 in possesssion but it's not quite right. The CMs don't push far enough forward and the wingbacks are either on top of the DLP or too far forward. When out of possession the CMs aren't working hard enough to press or support the defence but if I change them both to support roles then they play too deep. My current tactic is below: - Very Fluid - Control - Higher - Wider - Work Ball into Box - Exploit Both Flanks * Wingers and CMs instructed to push further forward to make room for the wingbacks to move into midfield. SK ( s ) IWB ( s ) CD ( d ) CD ( d ) IWB ( d ) DLP (d) W ( a ) MEZ ( s ) MEZ ( a ) W ( a ) AF ( a ) Any ideas?
