Probably not and that's how I would have approached the Birmingham game and the west brom game. For united I might feel slightly more inclined to have a little more protection and was wondering if this formation even exists or has ever been used?
I don't know where I came up with that, but it seems to put everyone in a comfortable position, allows for the front 5 to go forward and still have 5 men and Pepe in defense... just a wild thought..?
Just a side note, obviously most of you saw or know Valencia broke his leg so I'd assume Obertan would play there and I'd like to think Konchesky could handle him fairly well. Unless of course (probably) Ferguson puts Nani there and Giggs on the left. If not, I think they should really look to exploit down that side vs obertan and neville/oshea. I honestly think Babel could win that one along with Cole weaving and interchanging with him on that side..
