Manchester United Team News In!! Matic Pogba and Pereira Star in 3-5-2

New boy Nemanja Matic gets his first start for United.  Nothing beats Wednesday afternoon football to blow off work. 

There is a lot to like about the squad so let’s have a look.

  1. 3-5-2:  I think this formation suits the squad the best.  The Matic signing is so underrated to provide balance in the midfield allowing Pogba and Pereira/Herrera to get forward.
  2. Matic/Lindelof/Lukaku: All 3 new boys get a run out in our last friendly.  Not for nothing but 6’4″, 6’1″, and 6’2″.  Mourinho has his giants.
  3. Passing out of the back: With Lindelof and Blind on either side of Smalling we should have 2 players capable of picking a pass out of the back.  This allows Smalling to defend.
  4. Squad depth: Bailly, Mata, Rashford, Martial, Carrick, Fellaini…..United quietly has nearly 2 full squads worth of quality.  Let’s not forget Fosu-Mensah, Tuanzebe and McTominay.

So there you have it.  I’d like to see at least 2 goals out of the team today with this team getting 65 minutes together.  Reminder that Bailly will be suspended v Real Madrid and our first Champion’s League game.

Oh yeah…
