Jose Mourinho A.S Roma Tactical Analysis | FM21 tactics

Jose Mourinho's early A.S Roma tactics may have surprised a few spectators. Not the formation, but the positive football that has been on display at the Stadio Olimpico. Jose has managed in four competitive games so far, with a 100% record scoring an impressive 12 goals with just two conceded.

In today's tactical analysis, we will look into Jose's early tactics and why they have worked for him so far. Furthermore, can it continue? We also have the Football Manager 2021 Jose replicated tactic.



So far in all four matches that Jose has managed, Roma have lined up in a 4-2-3-1 formation which has served them reasonably well. In both Serie A games, Mourinho fielded the same 11 but was forced into one change against Salernitana, which saw Carles Perez come in for the suspended Nicolò Zaniolo. He has also fielded the same side in both UEFA Europa Conference League qualifier legs against Trabzonspor. Eldor Shomurodov started the first leg before Tammy Abraham arrived at Stadio Olimpico.
