Southampton vs Man Utd – Potential 4-3-3 formation – Van Persie starts

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United are in a run of great form right now. Four wins on the bounce means United are one of Europe’s most in-form teams and are back among the best sides in football.

It’s a refreshing change from last season overall but the festive period under David Moyes was actually a bright light in a dim season as the Scot steered United to a great run of wins before it all began to unravel.

Away to Southampton on Monday is a tough fixture for Louis van Gaal‘s side, there’s no doubt about that. Third against fourth in the Premier League is always set to be a difficult game for both sides.

In this 4-3-3 formation, deeper lying roles for Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini give United a very defensively solid shape with Ander Herrera in the No.10 role, free to take United forward.

It also sees Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney adopt less natural roles out on the wings with Robin van Persie spearheading the attack.
