What's interesting for me is if it'll get figured out over the course of a season, it's hard to pick it apart in knockout football like the World Cup, but easier over 38 games.
I am sure they will revert to 451. United doesn't have the players for 3 at the back. Smalling is a liability, Evans to a lesser extent, as well. Jones is an enigma for me. That away leg Real match was probably the most impressive showing from him in a Man Utd shirt. I want him to go on a streak of solid matches. Right now he looks like he is getting injured in every match.
