London - Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal must decide whether to
stick to his preferred 3-5-2 formation or go with a 4-4-2 set-up demanded by
the club's increasingly frustrated fans when the 20-time champions host
Leicester on Saturday.
Van Gaal says he finds it uncomfortable to watch United when it
plays four at the back, but results show the team is more effective when it
lines up in that formation.
The Dutch manager changed to a 4-4-2 midway through United's last
league game when the score was 0-0 against Queens Park Rangers, and the move
paid off in a 2-0 win.
United has won only two of its last six games in all competitions,
and is reeling from being held 0-0 by fourth-tier Cambridge in the FA Cup on
Saturday's fixture against Leicester City kicks off at 17:00.
