Manchester United’s team news is always eagerly anticipated ahead of kick-off but there is a particular focus on tonight as fans wait to see what formation Louis van Gaal decides to use against Cambridge United.
MUTV have predicted Van Gaal will drop the 3-5-2 formation in favour of a traditional 4-4-2 with Antonio Valencia and Angel di Maria on the wings.
It’s a strange choice because the 4-4-2 diamond has been Van Gaal’s preference when using that style this season rather than the traditional version with two wingers.
Fans want to see four at the back in defence tonight and up against a Cambridge side who won’t pose too much attacking threat, it could be the perfect opportunity for Van Gaal to inject some attacking impetus back into his players with a more open and expansive formation.
