“Obviously, we were one goal behind, so we needed a goal and we had to take more risks so we brought Edinson Cavani and Jadon Sancho on to play in a 4-1-3-2,” Rangnick told MUTV.
“In some situations, including the goal we scored, we were good. Edinson has two other good chances to score and with him we had another striker who was dangerous in front of goal.
“It was not a question of formation – it was a question of how aggressive we were.
“It was a question of energy and, in those areas, we need to get better, including what we were doing when we’re in possession of the ball.”
