Like, using 4-3-3, my midfield needs to have players which play CM (Center Midfield) but most of my players are CDMs. So, teams changing formations need to change players?
I don't play FUT, I prefer playing career mode, but when you build a team, you either play with a formation that suits best your players, or bring in players to play a formation you like to play.

I usually like to play 4-2-3-1 (4 defenders, 2 CDMs, 1 CAM, 2 wingers and 1 striker). So I buy players that fit with the formation.

For a newbie, stick to either 4-4-2 (or 4-4-1-1) or 4-3-3. Those are the most common used.
