Attacking midfield in a 3-4-2-1
Ronald Koeman utilised the 3-4-2-1 system in their opening day win over Stoke, with Sandro Ramirez playing just ahead of Rooney and Klaasen. In this formation, the former Tottenham man would take the inside left role as his own, allowing him to find space in the final third to create chances for both himself and others. He excels when taking forward with the ball, and with opposition defenders focusing on Sandro. He could benefit in front of goal. Rooney scored his goal against Stoke after drving forward from the inside right position, and Sandro and Sigurdsson could switch during games to further confuse opponents.
