Defence dropping extremely deep

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

I started playing as Monaco, usually playing a 4-2-3-1 with 2 DMs or a 4-1-2-2-1 and I've noticed an odd and annoying problem with the defence - when the opposing wide players get the ball, my defenders and DMs will all drop deep into the 6 yard box, sometimes even as far as the goal-line, leaving space for an easy pullback or even the winger walking into the box and scoring:


4 defenders, 1DM and 1CM (the BBM) in the six yard box.

The pictured situation happened in a 4-1-2-2-1

-Hassle opponents

-Push higher up

-Get stuck in

-Use tighter marking

It also happens regulalry even with push much higher up and attacking philosophy, whether I play with 1, 2, or 0 DMs.

Monaco is a brand new team, pretty much all the first team players are new, so could it be just because they're lacking cohesion? Or is it a bug in the ME? Or are there some team/player tactical instructions I can issue to prevent it from happening as often?
