About this formation
I've gone for a technical line-up because of the way that Van Gaal likes to play. Schweisteiger and Schneiderlin providing a base for a very creative forward four. I'd see a lot of movement from the front players and obviously keep possession. But this is a very slow side - for pace and penetration, I'd swap Mata for Young and Schweinsteiger for Depay, with Herrera moving into the middle... and for the physically tougher games, I'd sub Fellaini in there for impact.
