PICTURE: Potential diamond formation for Manchester United – no Shaw

Manchester United and Louis van Gaal have been tinkering with their system and formation a lot since he became manager, and in his tenure we’ve experimented with three formations at one point or another. Against QPR, we went for the diamond formation, and we reckon he’ll stick with that for the time being.

When everyone is fit, this is the XI i’d go with below. There are a few notable absentees, including Luke Shaw, Robin van Persie and Adnan Januzaj.

There is no doubt that Luke Shaw will eventually find his way into the United team, but its hard to change somethings thats working when you’re a manager. Tyler Blackett has been superb since stepping into the side, and alongside Phil Jones they can form a real partnership.
