Sundowns can go the whole season unbeaten with this formation

Mamelodi Sundowns showed their class whb they upset Orlando Pirates in the DStv PSL. 

Masandawana are the early pacesetters and firm top choices to secure the association titl by and by. 

They are equipped for completing the season undefeated on the grounds that their development is simply splendid. 

Since Pitso Mosimane withdrew the club, we have seen less of Downs utilizing a 4-2-2-2 development, something "Jingles" had an inclination for. The co-training team of Rhulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi have utilized that framework on a couple of events yet have all the more regularly gone with a midfield jewel or a 4-2-3-1 set-up. 

Against Chiefs and TS Galaxy, we saw two veritable strikers with Shalulile upheld by a wandering Kermit Erasmus. Gaston Sirino and Zwane have been on the sides of a thin midfield four, coming inside as number 10s to make a container midfield. 

This has a few advantages in that it over-burdens adversaries midway and poses inquiries of how rivals cover space hidden therein. 

Most groups will be awkward playing with their two place backs against Downs' two quick strikers while their more profound midfield pair will have their work removed managing Sirino and Zwane. 

This gives existence for Andile Jali and Rivaldo Coetzee to direct issues in more profound regions. The shortcoming comes in the dependence on the fullbacks for width and a lot of room down the wings for adversaries to take advantage of. Erasmus is regularly the X-factor in this shape since he can drop profound, skim wide or take advantage of room that Zwane and Sirino make. 

He might have lost the majority of his duels against Chippa, however Erasmus dealt with a mind boggling six shots at objective, frequently from the highest point of the crate, while he set up Lyle Lakay for a possibility and won the freekick from which Downs started to lead the pack. 

Erasmus began last season so well with two objectives and one aid the initial three matches, however his season saw only an additional one objective and two additional aids the following 27 rounds of DStv Premiership activity, generally because of wounds or being left on the seat. 

One more integral justification for his plunge was playing so once in a while as a strike accomplice for Shalulile as that combo had dangerous examined the early piece of last season and in this current mission's initial days.
