The Red Devils Still Look Disjointed Despite Break.

4-2-2-2? Really?

The Red Devils played their first match in 16 days and the cobwebs were still on. Manchester United looked very disjointed and most especially in the first half. Rangnick went for a 4-2-2-2 formation, but it seems Manchester United players are not used to his system yet.

Ralf Rangnick reveals what went wrong after slamming Man Utd display in  undeserved draw at Newcastle

United cannot afford to be dropping points against teams like Newcastle. The Reds have games in hand to play and with this sort of form, they might find it hard to gather enough points for a Champions League place.


Rangnick’s formation yesterday clearly did not work as he had planned. Rashford is better on the flank and despite his poor form, Jadon Sancho is still Manchester United’s best winger.

The formation also didn’t let Bruno Fernandes be at the heart of things for his team, hence his bad performance yesterday.

United fans will learn in the next few days if this is going to be the new norm, but whatever it is, Rangnick will need his players to get on board and fast.
