With the two most recent victories over other top four contenders in Tottenham and Liverpool, it appears that Louis van Gaal may have finally reached a formation and squad that play to his philosophy. Juan Mata has come in and played brilliantly in the attacking midfield while Michael Carrick has also regained his starting role in the midfield. Both of these changes have been the result of absent players, as Daley Blind had to move from midfield to left back with Luke Shaw’s injury and Mata was chosen to fill in while di Maria was suspended. The question now becomes whether or not van Gaal should stay with the same squad or revert back to previous personnel combinations. The answer should be clear; if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
