The 4-4-1-1 formation
This formation is not as confusing as it looks.

Who said football was like a game of chess?

It's simple. It's having someone playing just behind the main striker but ahead of the midfield.

Paul Scholes has done it a lot for Man Utd.

This player is dropped between the opposition midfield and defence and will get more time and space on the ball.

And hopefully be in a position to create more goalscoring chances.
