Solskjaer's planned tactical switch that may revive United's Title Hope

In the Premier League, Manchester United has had a bad run, winning just once against West Ham, losing to Aston Villa (0-1) and drawing with Everton (1-1). This run will hopefully come to an end after the international break for United. 

Injuries to Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial, as well as the absence of Fred and Cavani, who will play in the Copa America World Cup qualifiers the day before the Leicester encounter, might leave Solsjkaer shorthanded after the international break. Returning players like Marcus Rashford and Amad Diallo have a shot at making the matchday roster. 

The early team news means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to make some personnel and formation changes starting with the Leicester game against Ole Gunnarsson. After Pogba and Fernandes, who are anticipated to play as double number 8, Ronaldo might return to the starting eleven, with McTominay as the lone sitter in midfield. Organizing the team could look like this. 

Using a 4-3-3 system appears to be Ole's next trick for making the most of his talented squad. This formation is shown above. Is Manchester United's eight-year title drought about to end because to a tactical change? Let us know what you think in the section below.
