Manchester United Vs Crystal Palace Preview
Talking the tactics:
Ralf Rangnick has always preferred playing 4-2-2-2 during his tenures at VfB Stuttgart and RB Leipzig. The father of Gegenpress is at Old Trafford and we can expect some heavy metal football at Old Trafford. There will be a lot of injection of pace against the Eagles in the PL fixture.
The manager hates the sideways passing and building from the back in his setup and will use the target-man approach. He is known for utilizing the pace and hitting the team with his possession and eight-second football. Under the new interim manager, we can expect the players to play high-intensity football.
There is a lot of doubt cast on Ronaldo’s availability. However, the manager will look to use him for the target man approach for the game against Crystal Palace. Also, Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles have utilized the chance they got against Arsenal. The manager will look to use these players as he prefers attacking fullbacks. Also, Luke Shaw is unavailable for Manchester United.
Preferred Manchester United Playing XI: David de Gea, Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Alex Telles, Donny van de Beek, Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo
