Six potential formations for Manchester United this season

Six potential formations for Manchester United this season

Manchester United encouraged followers and fans to send them their suggestions for what formation Louis van Gaal should use this season.

Understandably so as it is currently a big topic of debate among United fans. How does Van Gaal have Falcao, Van Persie and Rooney in the same team? Should United line up with three or four defenders at the back?

From a traditional 4-4-2 and Van Gaal’s 5-3-2 formation to 4-3-3 and even 3-4-3, there were plenty of different suggestions sent in by fans.

Here’s a collection of formations United published as potential ways in which United could line up.


The only attackers to be in every formation were, unsurprisingly, Di Maria and Falcao.

We’ve already discussed what formation we think will work best for United this season and you’ve let us know some of yours but what do you think about these suggestions?

Are any of the formations sent in by fans suitable for United and Van Gaal this season?
