4-2-3-1 will be used during the season. Who should be first choice to partner Pogba?
Why move 2 guys who had a great game from the position they played well in? Rashford when he plays on the right isn't as good because he's forced to go outside if he wants to go on his stronger foot it's the same issue Martial has when he plays on that side. For me unless one of them is playing in the middle they can't both play. We chopped and changed way to much last season and it meant we never got going up front I'd look to make as few changes as possible to that front line.I would keep it as it was except have Martial on the left of the mid 3 and Rashford on the right (miki in middle) dropping Mata. No place for Herrera unfortunately.
I could see another 3 or 4 goals going in
Do you think it might be Blind at home and Darmian away this season until Shaw gets fit? I know what you mean Blind gives us so much more going forward than Darmian plus quality on set pieces with his corners/free kicks.Yeah I'd go along with that, I think Herrera will come in for Mata but I wouldn't bet against it being an unchanged side. I hope Jose sticks with Blind at left back, he just gives us that bit more in attack.
I would like to see Martial and Rashford unleashed together but Mkhitaryan played well and doesn't deserve to lose his spot. Although knowing Jose, Lingard will find his way back in!
I think Blind is particularly poor at corners, free kicks and crossing. He rarely beats the first man when taking a corner.Do you think it might be Blind at home and Darmian away this season until Shaw gets fit?

Hopefully the Madrid game was just a case of him being a little bit short of fitness and also judging him against the best midfield in the world is harsh no one can handle that midfield right now even without Modric at times they bossed Barca in midfield on their own patch in the super cup.I take the point and your probably correct in that we shouldn't. Perhaps I've bought too far in to this being solid in midfield mentality! I just think Herrera as a player who can do things both sides of the half way line and someone who given a license to get further forward will impress even more than he did last season.
Yeah that's one of the main reasons why I want Blind to stay in, just for a little bit of continuity. Obviously we had injuries last season which meant we needed to chop and change but it was unnecessary every week.Do you think it might be Blind at home and Darmian away this season until Shaw gets fit?

I really hope he doesn't tinker this season it did my head in last year the top sides play a consistent XI in most games they don't constantly chop and change obviously you pick up injurys/suspensions and need to give the occasional rest to a player who's running on empty but the bulk of the great sides play nearly every match.
