I am a defensive Top Eleven manager, and always use counter attack. If your opponent are using 4-4-2 formation and have a better quality than, I suggest you to use 4-3-1-2. 4 defenders (DL - DC - DC - DR), 3 midfielders (MC), 1 attacking midfielder (AMC) and 2 strikers. With defensive team mentality, focus passing through the middle, pressing style own half, tackling style normal, passing style mixed, marking style zonal and checked both forced counter attack and offside trap.
What is the best formation against 4-4-2 on Top Eleven?
With this formation, I always have a better ball position and shots. Remember, it is not mean that you will definitely beat 4-4-2 formation if you use 4-3-1-2 formation, but according to my experience, 4-3-1-2 formation is the best formation against 4-4-2 formation on Top Eleven Football Manager.
