Also, as others have said, tactics only go so far - same as in real life. Plus, my midfield are in stupendous form right now, and I didn't want to break them up. Also, while you marked by best player out of the game, he wasn't my most in-form, the guy I chose as playmaker was, so that probably helped.
Don't forget, I was at home too, and had won my last 2 home games, that probably had a pretty big effect on it.
All in all, you'll probably batter me at your place
