About this formation
This formation is the best in my opinion because I think it would be the most effective for united to play more attacking football and these players have performed the best for this season. Wayne Rooney is a great forward but I think he needs to play behind Martial as a SST/AMC so he's free to create goals & contribute elsewhere on the field, playing him strictly as a NO.9 is to limited compared to what he has to offer to the team. I'm confident that Mata & Rooney will work well behind Martial.
Young & Valencia have proven time after time that they can play the entire line for a full game without tiring out, playing them strictly as wing backs is to limited, they provide brilliant crosses from the wings into the box & they are very attacking players & they also are quick enough to get back to defend along the line. Depay & Lingard are good but they're not has fast as Valencia & Young, they lack experience & they're not a strong defensively.
Carrick should play as a NO.4 (DMC role) to assist the back 3. Herrera should play the role is seems to be most as a NO.8.
Blind, Rojo, Mc'nair, Jackson are good but aren't as solid as Jones, Smalling & Darmian. I'm confident that these 3 will keep the central difference really tight. I also feel that if Carrick, Valencia & Young drop back to defend with the back 3 when necessary, United's defence will be more compact & difficult to penetrate & on the counter you've got Valencia, Herrera, Young, Rooney, Mata & Martial to attack.
This is the ultimate formation & team for the rest of this season if only Valencia & Young could recover from injury ASAP.
