Ralf Rangnick's reign as Manchester United interim manager got off to a good start, with the Red Devils improving in all aspects of their game: pressing, defending, and attacking, though they fell short on goals.
With Crystal Palace's task completed, all attention now shifts to Manchester United's final group stage match against Young Boys at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Manchester United will be looking to improve their image after a humiliating 2-1 loss to Young Boys in September.
With Manchester United already through to the round of 16 in the Champions League, Rangnick will most likely give some of the fringe players a chance to show him what they have to offer and if he can still rely on them. Dean Henderson, Bailey, Greenwood, Matic, Van de Beek, and Wan Bi Saka could start alongside key players such as Ronaldo, Bruno, Fred, Maguire, and Telles (due to Shaw's absence) in order to have some balance, a quality Rangnick wants in his team.
Rangnick may stick with his 4-2-2-2 formation to build on his pressing style, with Wednesday's game giving Greenwood in the striker role, Wan Bi Saka in the wingback role, and Van de Beek in the no. 10 role alongside Bruno a chance to prove their case as the best suited to be in Rangnick's starting 11. Rangnick's starting lineup against Young Boys could look like this.
Could the above lineup keep Rangnick's unblemished record? Please leave your thoughts in the section below.
