DESCRIPTION

It is very similar with the 4-5-1 (2) but the CDM in front of the back four gives more security on the defence.

STRONG AND WEAK POINTS

Very organised and solid midfield build up.
Lacks a little attack.
The striker may needs support. CM’s should have high attacking work rate.

MOST SUITED PLAY STYLES

Slow, methodical possession is needed to work the ball up to the pitch to ensure that when you do get the ball to your striker, he won’t be all alone up there at the top of the pitch.

HOW TO USE THIS FORMATION

If you want to dominate the midfield and sure up the defense, this is the formation people use. The CDM is the link between a seamless transition from defence to attack or a more controlled ballgame. It is very important to not try to play on the flanks using this formation. You will have to outmuscle the midfield. 4141 is a very solid formation that has strength when pushing forward but can be also very hard to break down. It is suited to players who prefer to build up the play, rather than hitting the opponent quickly on a counter-attack.

HOW TO COUNTER THIS FORMATION

The key against this formation is being patient because pace won’t work on it.

Formations you should use to beat this one (by descending order):
4231, 433, 451, 343.

Key Player
CAM | Most of your play will hinge on the CAM and his ability to play good, sharp passes. The opposition will see him as the danger man in this set-up too so you can use him as a foil really well.
