4-2-3-1: Man Utd’s strongest possible XI vs Istanbul with Cavani & Van de Beek

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Sad

Manchester United suffered yet another defeat in the Premier League last night and find themselves in the bottom half of the table.

Next up, the Red Devils will collide against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League and a win will help United strengthen their top spot in the group.

Transfer: Man United backed to secure signing of £55million player

The diamond formation did not work at all vs the Gunners and Solskjaer should utilize his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation vs the Turkish champions.

Cavani and Van de Beek have mostly been on the bench since joining the Old Trafford outfit in the summer transfer window and the duo must get the nod to start.

The Uruguayan international should start as the lone center forward up front and the Dutch attacker could play in the No.10 role behind him. Bruno Fernandes should be rested.

In the wide attacking positions, the likes of Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata could start. As far as the midfield is concerned, Pogba, who gave away the penalty vs Arsenal, should be benched. McTominay and Matic should start in the center of the park.

De Gea would likely retain his place in the goal and in front of him, Ole should make just one change in the back-line that played vs the north Londoners on Sunday. Tuanzebe should return in place of Lindelof to start with Maguire in the central defense.

Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Istanbul:

  1. Man.Utd have to play a different style of game. They got to move faster and forward not backward as they usually do passing near the goal keeper. The captain himself keeps doing that all over and over again although many a times that was the main cause of the opponents getting ball so quickly off them and scoring the goals first. It may seem hard to do but there must be one or two who are brave enough to take it forward through the other players and be fast enough to reach the goal and Rasford and Martial and Luke Shaw has that speed to do so.
