Unless your middle 2 are absolutely bang on it like Kante and Drinkwater were for Leciester which is extremely rare,
Even the way they played without the ball was a lot more like 451 as Okazaki would drop deep leaving Vardy up top on his own.
Okazaki, Mahrez and Albrighton would all then ping forward as soon as they won the ball and they would attack almost in a 424 formation. They were very well drilled and it was very effective.
The two huge issues we have right now are;
1 - we do not have an out and out DCM like Kante (who does)
2 - we do not work hard as a team to get back in and form one solid defensive unit when we do not have the ball.
Hernandez, Arnautovic and Anderson didn't track back at all between them. That makes it very easy for the opposition to overrun us in the middle.
