Published / by index

With Bruno Fernandes playing the role of attacking midfielder, the 23-year old is expected to partner him while Pogba plays deeper. Could this be similar to the 4-3-3 system Guardiola employed at Manchester City? VDB played a deeper role at Ajax where he is coming from but says he also wants to make runs in, score and create chances as well. They could be rotated as well so one player features behind the front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Marcus Greenwood.

Published / by index

Mason Greenwood has helped Manchester United to a 4-0 win over AZ Alkmaar. The visitors were hoping to cause an upset, defeat the Red Devils at home, then top the group in the process.
