Best OSM tactics for Manchester United 2016-2017

At the time I choose Manchester United the new season hadn’t started yet. So the objective for Manchester United was to finish in fourth place. I tried out a tactic which proved to work out perfect for Manchester United.


I decided to play in a 4-3-3 A formation and believe is the best formation for Manchester United. It’s really important to put the players in the right position. There is not much to choose for the goalkeeper. David de Gea is the best goalkeeper in the current squad.

In defence you need to tell apart two positions. The fullbacks and the centre backs. For the fullback positions it’s important the defender has at least 25 points for attacking. Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian are the best candidates for the fullback positions. Daley Blind, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Marcus Rojo are four candidates for the two centre back positions.

The centre midfielder should be a player who is equally good in attacking and defending. Bastian Schweinsteiger should be in this position at the start of the season. The remainder midfield positions should be covered by two attacking midfielders. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is the best attacking midfielder in this squad. Memphis, Herrera and Mata should compete for the last midfield position.

In the attack you should play a striker with less than 20 points in defending. Ibrahimovic or Martial. The wingers need at least 25 points for defending. Unfortunately is Wayne Rooney the only candidate to play as a winger, so you should focus on buying at least one extra winger for this position. I choose to buy Thomas Mulller and Neymar.
