Ralf Rangnick Set To Implement A Drastic New Formation At Manchester United

There are reports emerging that Ralf Rangnick could abandon his gegenpressing formation after four games in charge of Manchester United.

Rangnick is well known for deploying a 4-2-2-2 structure, but Laurie Whitwell from The Athletic claims that the German may change his approach after an underwhelming performance in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

It has prompted plenty of debate on Twitter, with fans accusing of Rangnick of not sticking to his guns, while others called for him to play a 4-2-3-1 that was favoured by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.




But whatever system he implements, United fans will be hoping for a rapid improvement from their side in the coming weeks.

The aforementioned draw with Newcastle saw another insipid performance from the Red Devils, who were lucky to leave St James' Park with a point.

David de Gea made a series of fine saves in the contest, while a sharp finish from Edinson Cavani spared their blushes on the north east.

United's other attacking players came in for a raft of criticism on the night, which included Marcus Rashford, who had a night to forget against the Magpies.

The Red Devils now face a big scrap to secure a top-four finish, and are back in action on Thursday night when Burnley visit Old Trafford.

United will be hoping to reduce the seven-point gap between themselves and Arsenal in fourth, but they do have two games in hand over the Gunners.
