Chants of ‘4-4-2’ could be heard from the stands.
There is some frustration surrounding Manchester United and the management of Louis van Gaal currently, despite the 2-0 Premier League victory against QPR on Saturday, reports the Times.

The scoreline suggests the Red Devils were in control at Loftus Road, but in fact it was well into the second half before Marouane Fellaini gave them the lead and James Wilson scored the second in injury time.
Van Gaal started his team in what can only be described as a 3-3-2-2 formation in West London, with captain Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata operating behind Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria.
It was just one of several formations the Dutchman has tried since taking charge at Old Trafford in the summer of 2014, as he looks to find a formula to accommodate a squad that leans heavily towards attacking players.
In a narrow formation the defence was badly exposed and against a more clinical side than the Hoops, United could have found themselves behind at half-time as their back line struggled.
The away fans could be heard chanting ‘4-4-2’ as they voiced their own concerns as van Gaal is seemingly hoping to stumble upon a system that works for his lopsided team.
Jonny Evans was hauled off shortly after the break and Wilson was brought on as the 63-year-old seemingly gave in to the wish of the supporters, but one thing is for sure and that is that things are far from rosy at the Theatre of Dreams currently.
