Right now he looks like he is getting injured in every match.
Yeah the manager will no doubt change the formation at some point, you can't really go a whole year playing the same way. Home or away, playing against a defensive team or an attacking one, a talented team or one up against relegation etc.. Each has their own different set of problems you need to overcome.
No doubt he'll give the 3 at the back a good go at some point, it'll be interesting to see how that works out. Could be a good option against the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool or City, if it works against Spain, it could be lethal against those attacking, possession based sides.
