Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides on new Man United formation for 2019/20 season

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided in a change in formation for his side ahead of the coming season.

Solskjaer adopted the 4-3-3 formation that saw the Red Devils play with four defenders, one holding midfielder, one box-to-box midfielder, and a attacking midfielder behind a front three.

But now, the Norwegian boss wants his side to play with in a fluid 4-2-3-1 system that will see a balance attacking team.

Although United finished the league in sixth place and failed to win any other trophy, Solskjaer was said to have improved the display of the Red Devils.

Time was when United utilised the flank and played counter-attacking football, with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo running rules against their opponents.

Given the Man United DNA that is obvious in Solskjaer, he is keen on bringing the glory days back using the same approach of Sir Alex Fergusen, consequently, he has revealed he’d tweak his system.

The new system will have United play with a natural defensive midfielder in front of the back-line, and behind two more creative players. This 4-2-3-1 fluid system will see the full utilisation of the flanks and quick transitions from defense to attack, according to the Metro.

United are still in the market to sign an attacking midfielder but Solskjaer is keen on building his team around want-away Pogba, who would play the creative role in midfield.

We are likely going to see either Matic and one of Fred or McTominay along Pogba in midfield but this also depends on whether we get Bruno Fernandes or not.

Daniel James is fast but he may not just be ready for first team football. Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez are likely going to be the wingers for next season.

United fans are certainly set for exciting times.
