Manchester United fans are calling Erik ten Hag a genius for employing Wout Weghorst as a No.10 against Barcelona.
However, the towering Dutchman has started the game at the Camp Nou in a No.10 position, behind the in-form Rashford, with Bruno Fernandes on the right, Sancho on the left.
Ten Hag's decision to start the striker as a No.10 sent social media wild as Man United fans hailed their manager.
One Twitter user wrote: "Weghorst #10 at the Camp Nou. I love Ten Hag."
A second tweeted: "Weghorst in the No.10 with Rashford up front and Bruno out wide right. Ten Hag you dirty dog."
A third added: "Weghorst as a number 10 seemed like insanity the other day but now I’m convinced it’s genius. Erik ten Hag is mint."
A fourth commented: "Weghorst at the #10 again? Ten Hag is a troll LMAOOO."
A fifth uploaded a picture of Ten Hag, accompanied with the caption: "We're playing Weghorst as a 10 against Barcelona, this man has some set of bollocks on him.!
Another said: "He's doing Weghorst at 10 from the start? Ten Hag is going to struggle to get his galaxy-sized brain back through the doors of the Nou Camp if this is his starting gambit."
Weghorst ended the league match against Leeds United last weekend in a similar position as he set up Alejandro Garnacho.
Will Ten Hag's tactical positioning of Weghorst pay off?
