Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he has four playmaker options ahead of the Premier League trip to Carrow Road to face newcomers Norwich City.
Solskjaer has adopted a 3-4-1-2 formation for the last two games in all competitions and it has proven to be successful for the underfire manager.
The Norwegian tactician employed the formation during the last Premier League game against arch-rivals Liverpool at home which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Manchester United were on their way to a big win over Liverpool until the timely intervention of Reds’ substitute Adam Lallana.
