In attack Wan-Bissaka pushes up high most of the time and interchanges position a lot with Antony. In fact Antony has been getting more space.So I'm guessing more of a pure 4-3-3 than the 4-2-3-1 for the rest of the year, since Ten Hag prefers Fred further forward and Sabitzer is more comfortable a little higher in midfield. More space centrally for the striker and Bruno a tad wider and deeper maybe, with Antony on the touchline and Dalot/WanB tucked in to help in midfield. So ultimately this hurts Antony a little as we reduce overlapping options for him.
All the more reason to replace McTominay with a proper DM, but I would be shocked if we move him last minute with Eriksen out.
He wanted the home win, clear. Secondly, maybe he brought him on as cover for Sancho, to avoid having Sancho‘s performance scrutinized too much, heh?I still can't digest the fact that he put Rashford ON for some time. I mean, Pellestri was available or could have given that to Mainoo instead he put our most important player for a very dead rubber game.
You can all sugar coat you want, but thats just a bad management from him. So Short term thinking.
