Player Selection (Personnel)
As for what type of players you need to select for this it is one of the most important parts of the formula. There is a bit of leeway involved where you can get away with some players but your central midfielders should ideally have a great engine.
That means that they should have high stamina and high attacking work rate and high defensive work rate. Up top a big man, small man combination works wonders so one who’s small with pace and the other big tall target man striker with physical attributes.
