Manchester United Reveals Starting XI With Tactical Considerations For Southampton Clash

Manchester United will host Southampton in less than an hour’s time at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

The Red Devils have already named their starting eleven for the game, with some changes made by Erik ten Hag to the squad.

The likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jadon Sancho have been given the nod to start ahead of Diogo Dalot and Fred respectively.

Confirmed Starting XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Fernandes, Casemiro, Sancho; Antony, Weghorst, Rashford.

In terms of tactical considerations, the team could play a 4-3-3 formation, with Casemiro sitting deep and Fernandes and Sancho given more freedom to roam and create.

Antony and Rashford could switch positions during the game, with one playing more centrally and the other staying out wide.

Alternatively, the team could also switch to a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Fernandes playing as a number 10 behind Weghorst, and Casemiro and another midfielder sitting in front of the defense to provide more cover.

The key will be to find a balance between attacking flair and defensive solidity, while also playing to the strengths of each individual player.
