Ole's tactical switch that could unleash the full potential of this struggling ace vs. Aston Villa.

Jadon Sancho's Manchester United career has not started as well as many hoped, despite his impressive goal contributions at Dortmund, 50 goals and 58 assists in 137 appearances.

Although much has been said about what may have caused Jadon Sancho's slow start at Manchester United, the question is what should Ole do to jump-start Sancho's United career:

Ocherstrating a forward tactical shift that will allow Sancho to play on his natural right wing.

Under Ole Gunnar, Jadon Sancho has been primarily used on the left side wing because Mason Greenwood has been tearing it from the right side. Although Greenwood is most effective when attacking from the right, giving Sancho a chance to play on the right wing for a while could help him gain some momentum and thus regain his form before being labeled a flop.Greenwood has dominated the right wing, so trying him out on the left wing could be the next step in his career. Greenwood would probably also flourish on the left wing, as he has been praised for his ability to play with both feet ever since breaking into the scene a while back.

Leaving Sancho to fumble on the right wing may make it difficult for him to be as dominant as he was expected to be, given that the reason for his signing was to finally solve Manchester United's right wing problems. With Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho, and even Ronaldo all capable of playing on the left wing, Sancho's best bet is to compete for game time on the right wing.

What other tactical changes would you urge Ole to implement in order to get the most out of his marquee signing, Jadon Sancho, as United take on Aston Villa this weekend? Please leave your thoughts in the section below.
