About this formation
David De Gea in goal as probably the best keeper in the world at the moment. Hummels would be a great signing to command the defence, alongside Smalling, Jones or whoever plays better. Rafael should be given more of a chance at right back, running forward but not overlapping as much as Shaw on the left. Carrick is a master of the holding midfield role, but he can be a great creator from deep and should be allowed freedom for creativity. Herrera will roam the midfield and keep up with the play, playing through balls, simple passes and moving to the edge of the box for the shot. Mata will play as a deeper attacking-midfielder, Running forward with the ball, overlapping Rooney and being a presence in the box if needed. Di Maria will act as a wide roaming central-attacking-midfielder. He will cut inside to allow Shaw to overlap or run wide to create chances via cross. Young will stay out wide and play the winger role although moving into the box or lingering around the edge when the ball is on the left. Nani should be given a chance to show he can play like the Nani we saw a few years back. He will play the same role, but both players will be allowed to cut inside if Rooney has dropped deep as he does. Rooney will play as an all round forward. He will drop deep, move into the channels and play through balls to players in front. He will lead the line and be playing the number 10 role with more attacking runs.
