Why Manchester United Could Play a Better Football This Season.

The fluidity with rigidity across the park, Erik ten Hag's Manchester United. It's about maintaining & creating angles to progress play before combining or utilizing qualitative advantages in the final third. Dalot or Malacia can find themselves in between the lines or in a back 3.

Fred can split the center-backs but also find himself between the lines with McTominay as the #6. Players have freedom, but each zone must remain occupied. Eriksen can receive at right-back but one of Dalot & Sancho must occupy the half space between the lines and the flank.

That's why each player has to be comfortable in each phase of play. It's why ten Hag has signed Malacia who's equally comfortable receiving in a traditional left-back position under pressure as he is in between the lines. A similar applies to Martinez. He can turn like a number 10. Erik ten Hag will change Manchester United's playing style yet he still needs time.
