Manchester United signed a world class striker by luring Romelu Lukaku from Everton in the summer transfer window.
Moreover, the Red Devils signed a new deal with legendary striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as well. The retired Swedish international is recovering from his knee injury and could feature under the management of Mourinho soon.
The Portuguese manager has mainly utilized a lone striker formation over the years. He did the same at Old Trafford last season with Zlatan being the main man.
This season, Lukaku has started as the lone center forward up front for Mourinho, who has mainly utilized the 4-2-3-1 formation.
Things may change when Ibrahimovic is fully fit to play. The veteran striker was the leading goal-scorer for the club last season with 28 goals in all competitions.
We can expect Lukaku to be the main man even after Ibra’s return but Mourinho will probably use a formation with 2 strikers if he opts to start both. We believe the strongest possible system will be with the 4-1-2-1-2 wide diamond formation.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible XI with Zlatan and Lukaku.
