How to beat the AI? Frustrated veteran PES player here

Hi guys!
basically I've been playing FIFA from 2000-2010 and Pes every version since 2011. This is literally the only game I play consistently and I love PES to the core and cant think of dropping it ever. In previous games I usually start bossing the highest difficulty by this time but this year's version is really giving me a headache. I am struggling to win at Super star. My issues are below:

1. Defending - I had many issues here. Would concede 2-3 goals every game running like a headless chicken with aggressive and high line defence options. I switched to all-out defence and deep line and stopped pressing the ball carrier. It got better. Recently my new tactic is to press with COM only and select a deeper player to track runs instead. This is helping me cut those obnoxious chip passes through the center that the COM striker just taps in past my rushing GK. But the problem now is COM is going wide and crossing a lot more. They 1-2 around my sideback easily and get in 3-4 crosses per game of which one is surely converted no matter how well I position my CB. Even a short weak attacker sneaks in ahead of my tall strong CB at least once and scores.

2. Midfield - I think I'm good here. I hold the ball well and keep 60%+ possession easily. Also during defending make some good steals here by anticipating COM passes. So I'm happy here

3. Attack - Another problem area. Creating chances isn't easy at all. I keep a lot of the ball and pass around until a gap comes. After that I either try to 1-2 or chip pass through the center or I work it wide and cross. I think I manage both about 6 times in a game of which 3 are intercepted by COM defender and the 3 chances I get, usually 2 are saved even at point blank by the GK david de gea style. I convert about 1. And I know about finesse shot finishing.

So my scores are usually 1-1. On an average In 10 games I play 7 are 1-1 draws, I win two 1-0 and lose one 1-0. The only time I scored 2 goals I also conceded 2 and it ended 2-2.

What am I doing wrong? Wanted to see where I stand relative to you guys.
Am I supposed to defend better and keep clean sheets? Are my conversion rates poor? Or are my conversion rates okay and I just need to create more per game?

I have problems at superstar also.. now i play on topplayer. It's not the end of the world to go lower. It's more comfortable to play so you can "breath"!

Same with fifa offline. Couldn't get trough the group phase at the world cup dlc but now and then i can make it to the finals - with blood sweat and tears still - but can't win but it's fine to me. It's balanced and not running like a headless chicken for the lions!

As for your attacking: try to give as much as you can lofted through balls and early crosses FROM ANYWHERE and you'll see you'll get some chances. Normal passes get intercepted all the way unless you're countering and have complete uncovered players.

For your defence: don't play with high pressure as it would let other players free and don't tackle that much! Just keep following the attacker and try to block their passes/shots!

Yeah, Im following that advice for defence which is why I dont concede goals through the center. stopping crosses+headers are the main issue now.
Im able to beat AI on top player most of the times. Super star is the level where im drawing and running it very close. Just a few more tips and I can brat it Im sure.
About attacking, so you're saying I should be a lot more cross/through ball friendly? I used to have that approach and have resorted to a more calm possession-friendly approach now and feel it gives me more control of the game. Will try crossing more since you suggest it.

What is very important too is look if standard in the team strategy a few defenders go forward! Sometimes there are TWO defenders selected to move forward with attacking! Deselect them because that is really fatal!!

Like for example in Bayern Alaba and Boateng(for headers) are selected to move forward! If you play vs a deadly counter team like Real they'll lynch you as those defenders NEVER be back on time to their position when getting countered!!

Even if you deselect them now and then they still will move some forward if their "natural" setting is "an upcoming defender" like Kimmich for example of Bayern/Germany!
