Emery has plenty of op­tions in his large squad but is likely to move away from Blanc’s pre­ferred 4-3-3 in favour of a more flex­i­ble 4-2-3-1. With Ibrahi­movic gone, Ca­vani will fi­nally get the chance to play in his pre­ferred po­si­tion of cen­tral striker. Emery has started with Javier Pa­s­tore as his play­maker and An­gel Di Maria out on the flank as the team’s main sup­ply line. Marco Ver­ratti is back to full fit­ness and been given the no10 shirt, and could be asked to play a more cre­ative role.
