5 players out injured: Man United’s strongest starting XI after international break
The third international break of the 2021/22 season is almost over and Manchester United are back in action later this week.
Man United’s strongest XI after international break
Option 1: 4-2-3-1
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could revert to his preferred formation for the rest of this month amid the injuries at Old Trafford. Alex Telles comes in as a replacement for Shaw but it’s hard to see Donny van de Beek getting into the starting XI even with two first-team midfielders on the sidelines at the moment.
Option 2: 3-4-1-2
Five at the back could be here to stay with Eric Bailly getting a chance to stake his claim. Jadon Sancho could also be tried as a right wing-back with Man United coaches reportedly working on playing the Englishman in a new position.
