Man Utd vs Liverpool: Potential 4-4-2 formation – No Di Maria

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United will be without Angel di Maria for the game against Liverpool this weekend and with that in mind, United’s line-up will have to accommodate for his absence.

Di Maria’s absence against Southampton drastically exposed the weakness of a 5-3-2- without him and Louis van Gaal is likely to have picked up on that, hence why we decided to go for a 4-4-2 diamond formation.

Without Di Maria, United’s counter-attacking threat is somewhat blunted but if the team can continue their decent recent form in possession, it should make it easier for a win to be secured.
