Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal admits he'll go into the new season without wingers.

While his formation is advertised as a 3-5-2 system, Van Gaal confirmed he'll be playing FIVE across the back.

"I can't see my philosophy working with four defenders," said Van Gaal.

"It will be five. Maybe there will be a time when I have to play with four. We will see.

"Now all the sessions are arranged for the five defenders system."
