The AI is smarter and will change his tactics around more based on results. If you take the lead he may go attacking against you to try and equalize and if he takes the lead he may go defensive to prevent you from equalizing. (Please note that I am not saying that the AI will learn your tactic over time! That is NOT the case!)

Also in FM15 the ME was biased towards High pressing, High D-line tactics, if you play like that in FM17 then the AI is much more likely to punish you.

The one basic tip for FM17 which I'd say is a must is to always have the opposition formation graphic visible. 

This will tell you if they have switched to attacking or defensive but also you can see if a player in a particular position has pushed forward or deeper. 

When you see these changes it's important to react quickly. For example, if I see a full back back push higher up the pitch on the graphic, I might get my winger to man mark him, or if he is an excellent crosser, close him down and show to other foot.
