Manchester United beat inter Milan on penalties on Tuesday evening, after a pre-season 0-0 draw…
Again, new boss Louis van Gaal deployed a 3-5-2 wing-back formation, and here’s five players who seemed to adapt to it best.
Manchester United first half: Lindegaard; Smalling, Jones, Evans; Valencia, Fletcher, Herrera, Young, Mata; Rooney, Welbeck
Second half: De Gea; M Keane, Evans, Blackett; Young, Cleverley, Fletcher, Kagawa, Shaw; Zaha, Nani (Hernandez 77)
5) Ander Herrera
The new Spanish midfielder fits excellently into this style. He has onrushing fullbacks to feed the ball, a no.10 to link up with, and a midfielder alongside to help him win back possession. Herrera ticked over play very well in the middle, and United fans will be mightily encouraged by the start he’s made to his Red Devils career this pre-season.
