Tactics and Analysis
There's just no stopping Zlatan right now, so that's why we have to build a squad with him up front on his own.
The Swedish striker notched a staggering four goals in Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League victory over Anderlecht, but quite amazingly, this items was released before his tremendous quartet. His backheel goal in the game against Bastia made many headlines, so let's give him the spotlight in this team.
This team is also about packing the midfield with defensive and creative options. With Lucas and Alex Kacaniklic on the wings, there's plenty of pace for Ibrahimovic to receive support. Alongside this, Remy Cabella is inclined to move forward, while Yohan Cabaye and Blaise Matuidi will patrol the central areas.
Defensively, there's plenty of options with this one. If you're playing Cabaye in the middle of a midfield trio, it's an excellent idea to utilise centre-backs who link perfectly. Any French Premier League defender will ensure green links, but be sure to consider exactly who you want in the full-back positions, as their allegiances will make a difference to chemistry.
With Patrice Evra and Christophe Jallet taking up their usual roles, this is a team that possesses pace, power and, of course, Zlatan's brilliance.
Eden Hazard and Mesut Ozil
There's an array of options for this team, as Hazard and Ozil both come from the Premier League.
I've opted for a hybrid lineup that includes three leagues and four nationalities. A defensive midfield of Marouane Fellaini and Sami Khedira is vital to this selection, especially when you consider the likes of Hazard and Ozil won't offer much defensive cover.
Work rates are the most important aspect here. While Thomas Mueller will bomb forward and track back down the right, Ozil's natural willingness to drift will ensure Mueller's space is occupied when he is out of position.
While Per Mertesacker may not be everyone's favourite defender with his 34-rated pace, his partnership alongside Vincent Kompany allows Ashley Cole and Philipp Lahm to move forward without the team losing its base.
To round things off, the Belgian behemoth that is Christian Benteke loiters up top. A superb target man to hold up the ball and help bring the talented players behind him into play.
