Something incredible happens if you use this ridiculous formation in FIFA 17

Did EA make this set up far too powerful in Career Mode?

Winning matches in FIFA 17 is hard enough – but what would happen if you had nine at the back?

YouTuber Rich Leigh decided to find out using Manchester United on the game’s Career Mode.

The towering Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a lonely figure up front – but it turns out  the strange line up is a stroke of genius

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is alone up front while everybody else is clustered around David De Gea’s box.

First up is the Community Shield against Leicester.

It’s the perfect start, with the nine-at-the-back formation leading United to a 3-0 win.

Victories against Bournemouth, Southampton, Manchester City and Watford then follow.

Could EA have made this formation too powerful?

Sadly, the side soon becomes plagued with injuries and a lack of forwards soon starts taking its toll.

United lose a Euro League game against Shaktar 1-0, before scraping past Hull and drawing with Chelsea.

Injuries take their toll on United and they only manage to scrape past Hull in the EFL Cup

Things soon start to get back on track, though.

They pick up a 2-1 victory against Feyenoord in the Euro League, smash Spurs 3-0 and breeze past West Ham 4-0.

Fast forward a few games and United are knocked out of the Euro League by Villarreal.

Not that it’s the end of the world.

They go on and win the FA Cup and the Premiership.

United sit at the top of table – some 10 points ahead of Chelsea – mainly thanks to Paul Pogba

They lost just one game in their Premier League campaign – and won 26.

Paul Pogba scored an incredible 30 goals and 19 assists – and incredible effort from the Frenchman.

So, there you have it.

If you want to win more trophies in FIFA 17 Career Mode, use this formation right now.

Oh, and sign Paul Pogba.
