Ralf Rangnick set to set up drastic new Manchester United squad

Rangnick is well known for deploying a 4-2-2-2 structure, but The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell says the German could change his approach after a disappointing performance in yesterday’s 1-1 draw against Newcastle United .

It sparked much debate on Twitter, with fans accusing Rangnick of not sticking to his guns, while others called on him to play a 4-2-3-1 which was favored by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But whatever system he implements, United fans are hoping for a rapid improvement from them in the weeks to come.

The aforementioned draw with Newcastle saw another tasteless performance from the Red Devils, who were fortunate enough to leave St James’ Park with a point.

David de Gea made a series of fine saves in the contest, while a clean finish from Edinson Cavani spared their redness over the northeast.

United’s other attacking players came under heavy criticism on the night, including Marcus Rashford, who had a night to forget against the Magpies.

The Red Devils now face a big deal to make the top four and are back in action on Thursday night when Burnley visits Old Trafford.

United are hoping to close the seven-point gap between them and Arsenal in fourth, but they have two games in hand against the Gunners.
