The Spanish duo flourished the more they played with each other but this season there is a lot more competition for their spots in the squad.
Herrera’s box-to-box style of play should really suit United now that Morgan Schneiderlin is in midfield to make sure the defence never gets too exposed.
Although we would never have envisaged Memphis playing in a central role up front, the 21-year-old sees himself as a striker because he wants to score goals. With that in mind, Louis van Gaal may decide to give him a run out in that position.
Van Gaal’s preferred formation is a 4-3-3 but we’ve decided to opt for a 4-4-2 diamond here just to take a look at another option.
